or maybe I should say DDIFM?
Dad, do it for me?

I really needed a place to store my cake plates...
other than their current home on top of our fridge.
The rattling and shaking that went on every time we opened the freezer
was about to give me a heart attack.
I found this beautiful table that was constructed DIY
from plans on the anawhite website and fell in love.

So my dad got to building, and sanding, and building, and staining. Then he brought me this gorgeous table last weekend. I can't stop staring at it. I am obsessed with the wood grain. The slats. The perfect handmade storage solution. The contrast between the dark wood and my mostly white serving pieces. The height. The endless entertaining possibilities.
I promise the pictures do not do it justice...
