I ended up taking a drive down I-95 to True Treasures today to get the Needlepoint Land store table. I plan to use it for classes, display, or just as a place where my customers can stitch for a while.
The Blue Crown Conure you see above is the house pet, Polly. I think the Needlepoint Land parrot is in love.
Now I had originally planned on buying a glass table, but they are heavy and would be difficult to move. Besides, as someone commented in the previous post, there are other drawbacks with glass tables, smudging being one of them.
I finally decided on a vintage table made of solid plank pine. It’s gorgeous! And perfectly distressed. Best of all, at 300 dollars (including the rush chairs), it was a real bargain.
The chairs are covered by an attractive seat cushion that works well with the store rug at Needlepoint Land.
Okay, so it’s missing a drawer! Boohoo. I can always have my carpenter at Needlepoint Land put something over it.
I’m not overjoyed about the 75 an hour delivery charge (what if there is a traffic jam?!!) but even with that added to the overall cost, I am still getting a deal.
I just wish Polly could have been included!
