THIS ONE IS FOR DAN!

Please read the pps at the end of this post!!!

Dan is one of our neighbors!  He loves to read my blog!!!   Surprisingly a few men enjoy reading it!  I had no idea how much Dan enjoyed it,  so much so that he has challenged others to a Patty's Epiphanies' Trivia!

Last night we were at a fun Thirsty Thursday at our Golf "Club" House and he mentioned that I hadn't put up anything new.  What was wrong with me????
I had to do something, and fast!

It just so happens that yesterday MC had a full day of "work" at his new position as MC  "Master Cart Boy" at Sams.  He was gone the entire day and I was home with no wheels.  I was in jail!

So what does Patty do when she's "stuck" in the house?  She goes wild.  I threatened MC when he left that things "might" change......he was prepared......

I decided that the table I was using for my "desk" in the kitchen was too large for the space.  I also didn't need an 80" x 30" desk.   Actually I don't need ANY desk!  I don't need an OFFICE!  All I do is manage a few social activities for our neighborhood and write this Blog!

 In the Great Room was another similar table, but much smaller....60" x 20"!  I measured,  and the large one would fit exactly in the Great Room Space.....so I switched them out.  I have ways to move things EASILY!!!  That was done in 10 minutes!  I also decided I wasn't crazy about the chairs we were using as kitchen chairs.  They were extremely uncomfortable and not the right look for this house.  They were purchased years ago for another house.....So I put them in the closet and just left my Wing Back chair.  We can use the Dining Room to DINE!

Both worked out great!



Large table now in the Great Room
 

 By the way, MC made BOTH tables!!

You might have picked up on the fact the large rug with the great circles is NOW in the Great Room..
I loved it in the Dining Room.  It's really a toss-up.  It's perfect for both rooms!


I got this brilliant Epiphany that I wanted the rug back in the Great Room.  I had given up with the flokati rug under the cocktail table.  I had no way to clean it!  The vacuum ate it up and to move the large cocktail table off and shake it was simply too much work!   So it's now in the closet with the kitchen chairs...they will show up somewhere someday....I promise!

So now I had to get the rug from the Dining Room back into the Great Room!  Easy! Hardly?
I could not move the table an inch.  The base is light, but the top is a 60" round glass beveled piece that is too much for me to handle, both in size and weight.....alone.....BUT.....MC is at WORK!    

I thought to myself I was not going to let this get me!!!

So YES I somehow got that glass top off the base.  I have no idea how?  So it's now on the floor ....still on the rug.  I slowly inched it in a circular motion until it finally was off the rug!  Then I was able to roll up the rug and pull and tug it into the Great Room.  Done!!     I was afraid MC might come home and walk on the glass table top before I could warn him.  I covered it with scatter rugs and the Dining Room Chairs to act as a barricade.


I had a time line.  I wanted to leave for Thirsty Thursday by 4:50 and I needed to shower, dress and all that good stuff.

So working at full speed and with a mission, I got the rug positioned in the Great Room and put back all the furniture that was pushed out of the way!




Some time a couple of days ago the wire on the Christening Dress broke and it needed to be fixed.  Again as long as it was down....why not try it somewhere else........
New place...this is a trial....but I like it.




And the Spare Tire Mirror?  It's back over the mirrored table in the Foyer...



SO HERE ARE THE RESULTS









I made it to Thirsty Thursday with time to spare.  MC met me there.  Thank goodness he didn't stop at the house first!!!  Although he expects anything to happen if he leaves me alone!!!

I wasn't going to make a Post with this...figure you all have seen me do this over and over.....

BUT AFTER DAN BEGGED FOR SOMETHING NEW..... I HAD TO....
Dan you are a Dear!  Love you Guy!

Patty  
ps Mentioned to MC that the next BLH purchase might be a 12 x 12  for the Great Room and put the "circles" back in the Dining Room....Could take months....  Sams doesn't have Executive Pay!!
pps......We put the rug back in the Dining Room.  With MC's help it was a breeze and took 10 minutes top to move everything off ....move rug back to Dining Room and put everything back.
We will be ordering a carpet to size from broadloom ....hope to find one with a "color on color pattern with texture....of course in Black to have all the white POP 
ALL THAT WORK ....AND IT'S BACK WHERE IT STARTED!!  GO FIGURE....
HAD TO "SEE" IT.
BUT THE TABLES ARE STILL SWITCHED AND WE LOVE THEM IN THEIR NEW PLACES.!
