Table In A Box...

My handy-dandy tools I must use.  This is the most awesome style of box cutter and it opens like a knife.  It cuts through just about anything including me!  Dull blade?  No problem hold a button and change to a fresh blade or flip the ends to get a sharper edge.  If I had to use a real screw driver I would never get any thing done.
 Here is my table in a box.  I have purchased beds in a bag but never this.  I thought, Oh, no, how difficult is this going to be?
Piece of cake!  A walk in the park!  Opening the box was the hardest thing I had to do.  The legs were packed nicely in a box behind the drawers,   Pull out the drawers and turn the two leg boxes around until you get them into a spot so you can lift them out.  Two legs per box, inside the table, inside wrapping, inside a box.
This is before I cleaned it.  Yes!!!  It was dusty inside a box.  That is a decorative tray on top holding my nuts and bolts.

This post had the possibility of going a completely different direction but I restrained my bad self and made a normal informative post.  Fifty-four by twenty-eight...this is one BIG table.

I think I'm saving it for my new green room...Cyber Green.  Yes, one more room to tear up and paint and reconstruct before I'm through.  And aren't you thrilled?  I'm sharing it all with you!

We're thrilled. That is one big table. If it had longer legs, I'd be tempted to use it as a dining table. It's a nice table and I love tables with drawers. And any handy dandy tool that fits in my hand! Enjoy your new table, Gail!
