I'm a little slow today. I just switched to Sanka. So...have a heart?

To all the coffee tables I've loved and lost...

Dear E-Bay:

Fuck you. Reserves not met... sniped at the last minute...

Here are a sampling of the tables I have loved and lost in the last month...

If I could just get a coffee table... I could get a couch.

And I could furnish my fucking house.

I'm most upset about the brown, orange and yellow one.

That table was my b'sheret. And now it's gone.

ooh I like the brown orange and yellow one, too. It's simple enough, why don't you make one? You can buy the bases ready made, a sheet of plywoord, some glue and tiles and a dab of grout...there you are.

Superbee, that brown, orange, and yellow one is the easiest thing in the world to make. Most of those tiles are available at Ho' Depot, and all of them are available at B&D Tile in Cutler Ridge (on US1). They all come stuck together in rows on a strip...you don't even have to deal with individual tiles.

Yea for real you can make those. I made one once and my mom makes them all the time. Go to a flea market and buy a cheap table (with a flap top) and then glue away. I found a table on the street that was being thrown away and I made mine from that. I can give you more details on how to do it if you are really interested. I can even ask my momma to help.

I know it's not that hard to do them, but I want to buy an ANTIQUE! If I wanted the table itself, I would just make it, but I want something that's been pre-owned. Shawn, if necessary, I may hit you up. ;)

But how do you those that *those* are antiques? Sure, the table might be antique, but they easily could have done the mosaics recently and passed it off as antique.... Plus, if you make it yourself, you can impress people with your craftiness.

so drop a bowling ball on it a couple of times. Spill coffee on the grout while it's still wet. Leave the metal base out in the rain for a week. Antique it yo'se'f.
