My House got "New Years-ed"
Our old table was nearing 14 years?? old and literally starting to fall apart, so we started shopping for a replacement. True to form, we found a beautiful, solid marble table on sale for $199. We eventually were given the "final" price of $99 and then had to pay a few hundred for piano movers to get the thing to our house. Yes - PIANO movers. This table weighs a ton. Literally, around a ton. It separates into two parts and the bottom piece is not so bad to move, but the top is a monster.
When the movers brought the table, the kitchen floors were still being redone and we had to set it in the next room over from the kitchen. Once the floors were complete, 4 very strong relatives moved it into the kitchen. The table broke a flat dolly and took 45 minutes to move from one room to another. Again - I am SO GLAD no toes or fingers were broken.

To imitate the coloring of the table, I put a small bit of yellow and brown inside a full package of white and mixed it gently until the coloring was basically off white with small streaks of brown and yellow.
Whew. Now the first snow of the year has come down and those little irritating "to-dos" have been scratched off and the house is at peace. It feels good.
