Poor Rick. :( As it turns out, he had a spat with the drill while creating this, which I also came home to:
What you're seeing is the skeleton for our brand new ottoman, complete with storage room for all kinds of things. I think Rick was bitten by the construction bug after building the desk for our office. And this storage ottoman seemed like the logical next step, since I had searched, to no avail, for an inexpensive coffee table long enough to accommodate our 9' couch but narrow enough to not take over the whole room. I will now demonstrate how roomy it is:
|There is really room for several more kittens; right, Rick? ;)|
Since the ottoman is 5' long and 22" deep, I can almost fit in it laying down (yes, I am a short-o, being a mere 5' 2" tall). And, of course, I'm certain that I'll be spending lots of time poring over magazines in it while wondering what is stabbing me in the rear end. (Rick: "Oh, there's this one nail...")
If you were wondering about our real plans for this beast as opposed to our staged photo shoot plans, they consist of this: a trip to Joann fabrics, several yards of light-colored fabric to break up all of the blue/gray that seems to be usurping the room, and some upholstery tools.
But hold up. I just said usurp. Why did I just say usurp? What, am I studying for the SATs again?
Anyway, before I can get to that upholstery, I need to go buy some Hello Kitty Band-Aids. Rick says they will
usurp his pain make his boo-boo feel alllllllll better.
I think if you average "usurp" and "Hello Kitty" you get normal. At least, I'll keep telling myself that.
Hope everyone had a wonderful Easter! :)
