She's FINALLY got her top on!!

The mermaid table that is.......... the glass top came and once my sweet husband returned from his travels we were able to put it on the base. Since it weighs 120 lbs. I didn't want to try it before he got back.


For those who didn't see her without her top -- go to this link.

I love having her complete.

  1. You obviously do NOT have children running around the house! LOL MY coffee table which is also glass has finger prints on it daily! LOVE IT!
    IT is fun to see what gardeners do when we aren't out in the yard.

    Happy Spring!

  2. Tina, thanks, I really am tickled with her.
    Lona, I appreciate it.
    Kim and Victoria, welcome! Thanks for visiting and also for commenting.
    Bren, On these muddy days I think a wet dog shaking will easily compete with finger prints. I forsee splatters from one Aussie especially.

  3. Janet - that's very cool. She's quite ephemeral, isn't she? Have you read the Mermaid Chair by Sue Monk Kidd? (Or the Secret Life of Bees) They are wonderful books. Have you named her?

  8. Oh my word!! It is fabulous. I knew it was going to look grand with that rug and your wall color. I think I had that wall color in my former kitchen and loved it. Is it by Sherwin Williams and called Smoke? You think it's a blue but it's in the grey family. It was very difficult to find. I must have painted my kitchen 9 times before I got the correct blue. My second guess would be Nantucket.

    The angle in the first picture really sets it off well.

  9. Thanks so much Anna. We really like our room. It was added in 1999, then redone after Hurricane Isabel. The first time the blue on the wall was Silent Musing by Gliddon. The second time the painter assured me he could match it. It is very close, but not exactly it. I will have to check out Smoke and Nantucket.

  13. Okay gal I am loving your blue living room walls and accents. I have old paneling so no wall color there but my washroom and bathroom walls are blue. In the living room I have blue couch and chair and blue accent rugs. My carpet is almost white or an off white.
    Your table is so pretty. Love it all.
