I've been away, trying to check off all those boxes on my to do lists....
....not before checking ole craig's list. That's where we found this beautiful coffee table.
When Steph found this mid century jewel; I knew we had to get it. And in the process, we made some cool friends.
If you're in Springfield, check out Decades on Commercial St.
I've also started the man cave, or as Steph calls it, the "basement project". Which I understand because typically man caves consist of kegerators and empty paint buckets for seats. I'm going for a little more style, without calling HGTV. Luckily the TV downstairs will only have a couple of channels; and last I checked, Biggest Loser doesn't air on ESPN. Here are some 'Before' photos.
