My wife saw that I got a bunch of nice cherry boards and graciously offered to “let me build her new coffee and end tables” . I offered to buy her this:

Then I saw it was $568 ….down from $682. You gotta wonder what the backside fo this looks like don’t you?

Seriously, do your spouses have expiration dates on the bottom of the furniture you build them?

Mike, I’m pretty sure it might look an old girlfriend’s, everything else about it reminds me of her! Yeah and not in a good way.

I can come up with a few comments on this, but would be afraid I would get banned from the site. LOL. The more I stare at this the funnier it gets and I have no idea why. Mel

Mike, I’m thinking a two bagger solution! You know, drape a really nice looking piece of some sort of high end cloth that reaches to the floor all the way around her Maybe some like a velvet, satin or silk. At least it would cover up that mistake I remember from all those years ago! That would sure help me get past the flash backs!

Mel—-no kidding! I had to use a fair of restraint myself!

FFontheside- Pretty sure you would want to put it against the wall! Then keep nothing good on top of it, because all my friends would be turning it around.

I think, for marital harmony, and all that blah blah blah, you need to jump on that if she likes it.

Pretty sure when she has you pull the trigger go where you are finding it for 568. It's 836 at Amazoo.

I think the real choice will be positioning. Ass out, or to the wall.

I don’t know how you could pass it up at over $100 off! There are only 12 left, but at full price. I was going to add it to my wish list, but I couldn’t find a return policy. It might not be as good as it looks ;-)))

All this needs is a couple of trailer trash tattoos painted on it to really complete the look…..
