I’ve spent the last two days building a coffee table… well, putting it together, lol…

I’ve been thinking I would like one where the top lifted so that I could work more easily on my laptop as well as use it to put my plate on when I am eating in the den…

I spotted one a few weeks ago and decided to order it… yesterday, it arrived, in a flat box… it hadn’t said anything about that when I ordered it but I figured this is how it would arrive…

I learned, after about 45 minutes and some YouTube videos, how to change the bit on the cordless drill… I learned that a rubber mallet is a handy tool, and I shouldn’t get rid of it… I learned to read between the lines when following picture directions… I also learned that it isn’t likely going to work out perfectly the first time…

but, after two days, and a lot of putting in and taking out of screws, I have a table that I am very happy with…

I’ve been thinking how my beloved would have had it together in a short time, and also how proud of me he would be…
