Farewell, Orange Crates

Now, as I was saying.

DZ has been trying his hand at woodworking lately. His first outside assignment has been to help us organize the multi-media nightmare that is our office.

So far, it's been a success. On Monday he delivered a seven-foot-high CD shelf made of solid maple. (Yes, we have a lot of CDs. We are music people.)

It's exciting because it was custom made for us by a friend and didn't require a trip to Ikea. It's also an exception to the rule that most of my furniture is either a) from Target, b) found in a thrift shop or c) inherited from family. It allows us to say farewell, orange crates! Goodbye, particle board!

As you can see, he did a great job. (Pig and Opus not included.)
