Out with the old, in with the new!

It's been fun moving into our small apartment (really I'm kidding when I say small), being able to finally have a place for all our things is the most wonderful feeling in the world. As everyone knows when you get married you have practically nothing, lets just say we were no exception from this rule. Lucky however we live next to a lot of family and they have very generously given us things to help get us started. One of these things is a table... Bruce's sister was throwing it away and asked if we wanted it. Of course we were trilled to have it and excited to take it home to fix it up. For the past week it had a table cloth on it because it looked liked this:

After a lot of sanding (I felt sorry for the neighbors) and staining I'm proud to say it now looks something like this:

Needless to say "Out with the old and in with the the new"! We've been having way too much fun decorating and finding free or cheap things to make our apartment look better. Being married rocks!

It really does look so good. Now for some chairs and we can all come over and eat some food.

Looks good - we have so many hand me downs and DIY projects in our house and have a lot of fun doing it! Have fun.
