One of my favorite pieces of furniture is my simple, wood coffee table. It's not too tall, not too short, not too big, not too small. Like hard-to-please Goldilocks, I find it "just right." Sidenote: What's the message behind Goldilocks and the Three Bears anyway? A girl breaks into the friendly bears' house and goes through all their stuff... Actually I wish I could just go inside people's houses to get a look at everything.
Throughout my childhood, my siblings and I would eat at this table, watching TV. Yes, we were the kind of family that sat around the glow of the TV, bonding over our love of The Simpsons and The X-Files. Did you hear that The X-Files is coming back?! As long as Fox is back from his alien abduction, I'm in.
My mom said the table was made from an old door, so the wood is thick and sturdy. But after 20+ years of loving wear and tear, the table was showing it.
