Table time

Now that we've moved into the house, we are really starting to enjoy it. Waking up when the sun rises (no choice there as we have no curtains/blinds yet:), watching wildlife from the sofa and eating from the kitchen are really simple pleasures. After using one of the unpacked shipping boxes as a table for 3 nights, I decided to try out my newly-honed handiwork on building a us something to eat on. Luckily google showed me the way to Design Confidential . I managed to return some leftover tile and tile adhesive and got the lumber from Home Depot with the cashback ($60). I put it together on Sunday and we ate our first meal on it this evening. It measures 96" L x 46" W x 29 1/2" H. Photos below:

Our super-kind and helpful neighbour, Larry, lent us some chairs so we could use it. It worked well as we had HK-style fried rice. Yum!
