A few weeks ago a local Bo Peep rented one of our buildings at work.
(Bo Peep is how my niece Trouble says the word boutique & how I will say it forever more)
The Bo Peep hosted several crafters all selling their wares.
My sisters and I made our way across the parking lot several times to browse.
On the third and final day of the Bo Peep I noticed a bench sitting outside and I fell in love with it.
I ran over to look at it closely and determined that if, at the end of the day, no one else had purchased the bench, I would.
You would not believe the number of people who stopped to look at that bench.
And from across the parking lot where I was tied to a cash register, I sent telepathic thoughts:
"Step away from that bench."
"That will not look good at your house."
"You do not want that bench."
Finally, with five minutes to spare before the Bo Peep closed, I jogged across the parking lot, ran into the barn and said, "I need that bench."
When I told Jason what I wanted to do with the bench he questioned me.
Not many people can see my vision until after a project is complete.
I wanted the bench at the end of our bed...a foot board of sorts.
Jason obliged and after looking at it for a few minutes he said, "Do you think maybe the lady could make us a headboard to match?"
My husband is brilliant.
It took me two days to track down the woman who made the bench, and when I told her what I wanted she gave me a very reasonable price and said "I'll see if I can find a head board to refinish."
Within just 6 hours she texted me and said, "I've found one. Here's a picture of it."
Three days later the headboard was finished and I picked it up.
If you don't think it's lovely, I don't want to hear it.
I happen to be in love with this furniture.
Here's my problem though, and this is where I need you.
What should I do with the lamp tables?
(Jason told me my table was a little cluttered and maybe I should clean it off before I took the picture. I told him that all of you love me in spite of my clutter)
I can't leave the tables the same.
Change the green to red and leave the cream?
Paint them a darker color ... maybe brown?
Make them look exactly like the bench and headboard?
Tell me what to do and I'll do it!
Actually, I won't do it, I'll pay the furniture lady to do it.
One more thing.
We're thinking about this instead of what we have:

It would change the look from more country to modern, but I think I love it.
Do you think that you love it?
(This time if you don't love it, tell me)
