Hey, have you guys been wondering whatever happened with the big buffet crisis of ’11?
The buffet was delivered last week and it is unbelieveably beautiful. The color is a rich chocolate – dark brown but not blackish. It’s well-made, substantial, subtle and lovely. It acquits itself very well next to the genuinely vintage oak chair. My favorite part of it is the front edge of the top that is textured to look like it was cut with a water-powered circular saw.
I did install a dog runway between the laundry room/back door and the kitchen. I think the pattern of that cheap rug is sort of Arts and Craftsish and so it fits nicely with my theme – say it with me –Craftsman Style Meets American West Plus Pine Cones And A Big Clock. But even if it wasn’t, it’s the right thing to trap little muddy dog feet as they blast their way across the pale carpeting from the back door to the dog treat jar.
So it all worked out.
