Then we got a surprise from my mother-in-law--the Avery table and chairs--that arrived at our door last week (we're still waiting on the red chair but we couldn't wait to get started on a new project).
Catcher "organizing" (his word) the boxes before we open them to begin assembly.
After carefully reading the "constructions" (again, his word), losing (and then finding) a spring washer in the carpet, the table was complete.
Catcher testing out the first chair to be assembled. I had the legs on backwards the first go-round and then discovered the little arrows pointing you in the right direction.
Sixteen screws, eight legs and four Allen wrenches later we were ready for a real test drive. First order of business: Catcher assigned chair colors to everyone. He's blue, Scout's yellow and Tillie is green.
Mmm...dinner never tasted so good.
*proper meaning dining table, not coffee table like we've been doing for the past six months
