I am going to be in trouble...

...when my husband comes home tonight.

I bought a piece of furniture without consulting him.  It wasn't expensive--but it was a furniture purchase nonetheless.  We typically consult one another before such purchases--regardless of the price.  It's only fair since we live in the same space.
But, I needed it.  You see, yesterday Sharon and our friend Laura and I were shopping in lovely Historic Downtown Melbourne.  I saw a lovely sofa table at a thrift shop, but I wasn't ready to commit.  But after a day of not being able to get said table out of my head, I went back and picked it up for $25.

Isn't she a beauty?  I like the feel of it and I also like the small scale--it's hard to find a good sofa table that's made on a small scale.  You can't blame me, right?

I got the table home in my somewhat trusty Volvo wagon and got busy making it "work" in the space.  I have two other places that the table would fit, but I'm going to try it in my cozy nook for a while and see how it goes.  If you don't recall my recent Cozy Nook Transformation, you may want to take a peek.  Here's a shot of the transformation as of a few weeks ago...

I think the new sofa table made a HUGE difference in making the cozy nook even better!

Here's to hoping my husband doesn't shake his head in disapproval (yet again). He's usually a pretty good sport when I nest--as long as I don't leave a path of destruction--which I have been known to do.

And on that note, I'm off to clean up my path of destruction.
