OH What a Week!

I have four exciting things to tell you.
1. I'm going to a U2 concert on Sunday night...and I am FREAKING out!
2. I bought a coffee table today at the Habitat for Humanity Restore!
3. I bought a really cute set of retro hand decorated plates there too!
4. I'm on fall break!

Ok, so about this coffee table...I have to tell you some background information. I kind of love Elvis Presley (I know you think this has nothing to do with a coffee table, but it will I promise). When I was a kid I thought he was still alive, and then my grandma told me he was dead. I was in mourning for a week. SOO, I have all of these Elvis pictures from a calendar I used to have, and I also have a ton of 45' records. I'm going to put them all on the coffee table. This is my next project and I'm so excited.

I'll keep my progress posted on here. Right now I'm working on taking the handles off and filling the holes. Then I want to cover the top with newspaper. THEN add the pictures. Luckily, my dad has a lot of experience with furniture. He's going to help me get the legs of the table back in good shape.

This is one of my super cute retro plates. I LOVE. I also bought some little yellow tea cups and a creamer that matches the yellow in the plate. It makes me so happy to be buying things for the house! I can't wait to move in.

Have a good Thursday!
