And whilst this table is quite serviceable and I love the fact that my husband made it with his own two hands, quite frankly I am tired of it after 15 years. I want to inject a bit of colour into our narrow, dark hallway. There are no drawers in our hall table - I want drawers. I want rustic, and I want green. Not a deep, dark green table, cupboard or chest, more like a sea foam green, a light apple green - something that looks fresh. I want something that looks like these:
So, I am searching, searching for that elusive hall table that is in the perfect shade of green, that has just the right amount of 'oldness' and that has two or three drawers. Wherever I go, I search for MY table - I will know it when I see it. I just know it will show up one day. In the meantime, I am prepared to wait.
