Remember how I was agonizing over what to do with the entry?  Agonize no more.  Meet Oslo:

We spent months going to Crate & Barrel and petting this Oslo Bar Cabinet.  The dimensions were pretty much spot on for what we were looking for and the closed storage was perfect.  This thing was never going to go on sale, but there was finally a Black Friday / Cyber Monday deal, plus we scored some free shipping thanks to the lovely saleslady (and a little bit playing we are young and poor but have expensive taste).

Oslo finally arrived this morning and we eagerly stuffed it with things we need to grab on the way out the door - umbrellas, gloves, sunglasses, etc. - plus stuff that just needs to live somewhere like batteries and my sewing kit.

Remember how it used to look like this?

I sold that table last weekend.  Craigslist tip: always post quality photos.  Even though it never looked like this in real life, these are some of the staged photos I posted:

Wanna know a secret?  I bought that table off of Craigslist 2 years ago for $65, and it was delivered to me.  I sold it last weekend for $100.  I think I actually could have gotten more, but was just happy to have it out of the way because our new friend was coming in.

Look how pretty now!

I borrowed the framed print from the dining nook (there's something else in the works for art there) and the horse was gifted by my mom.  Thanks Mommy!
