drum roll please...
I bought this wonderful old drum last week and I decided it was just the thing to add much needed levity to my living room. Right now I have it sitting directly on the floor but I'm thinking it might look better if it's lifted just an inch or two up. I'm trying to decide the best way to do that. And I want to add a larger glass top which will sit up on the metal bits but I'm not sure it will be safe that way. Maybe I can put a little dab of that rubbery mirror glue to each of the metal parts so that it will be more sturdy. I have to think about it some more. As it is now, there's a round glass tabletop sitting inside the top of the drum.
Rich was so excited when he came home to see this new drum table. He said "Is that a drum? Can I beat on it?!" Of course!
My father has just finished another costume...this time a big bear. Just imagine how cute he'll be with this big drum and a humungus wind-up key on his back! When I told him this idea, though, he didn't seem all too pleased. And maybe I don't want to risk him getting to excited and, in his zest, putting a hole in the side of my table...I mean drum.
