April 14

I blogged about this little while ago, but I'm just now getting around to dealing with it.

You can read the story of my wonderful and FREE Bookcase here.

Anyways, so I had already decided where I was going to put this bookcase - I measured and everything!  However, of course it just didn't work there - as shown below...


So I had to go back to the drawing board...  after days of pondering on it I was only able to come to 1 conclusion - I was going to have to get rid of something to make room for it. WHAT?! Get rid of something!?!?

Eventually, I was able to come to peace with getting rid of the baby changing table in my dining room. Yes, I know, it should not have been that hard to get rid of that - I mean a changing table in the dining room doesn't sound like a very great idea to any of you now does it?  I'm here to tell you that you are wrong people - that thing was wonderful!  When Jake was tiny we could set him in there and he was safe and secure, we captured many giggling fits on video on that table, not to mention we didn't have to run up the stairs everytime he had a dirty diaper or risk getting other furniture dirty.  But, these days it is just as easy to plop him down wherever to change his dirty drawers, so it is time to move our beloved changing table to a new loving family...  (sigh).

The mess that was the changing table is pictured below.  Now that I see it on the screen I do realize that it is kind of an eyesore.  Oh well! :)


So here is what that spot looks like now!


Much better than that changing table, huh? :)

I'm working on what to put on it, so stay tuned for that!


  1. Well, I like it!!!

    I can't believe the changing table is going. But I understnd. =(

    Like the new look of the blog. Especially the pictures across the top! Right now those are my favorites of Jake, and they are across the top of my credenza at the office. I love them!

  2. Nice! I almost felt like I was watching HGTV!
