David and I decided not to exchange Christmas presents this year- instead, we gave each other our fabulous little November road trip to Seattle, Vancouver, Northern California and San Francisco.
But, of course, as Christmas day drew near, we got a little nostalgic and decided that we wanted to be able to wrap something up for each other to put under the tree this year. You know, more fun, less Grinch. So we decided to give gifts, but with a caveat: any gift we gave to each other had to be F.R.E.E. And no, not like re-gifting free, but more like "I made this for you because I love you very much" kind of free.
I made David a 2011 calendar, complete with adorable little inside jokes for each month.
But, as cute as my calendar was, David totally won in the awesome gift department. He apparently was paying attention when I was drooling over all of those fabulous coffee table trays I've seen out in blog land.
And so... he made me one!
Well, two actually! With *free* pieces of scrap wood that he found in our basement, David put his woodworking skillz to work and made me these two beautiful trays! Aren't they great?
Last weekend, while David and Nathan were busy with our bathroom renovation, I grabbed a can of
spray paint and decided to bring a new life to one of my beautiful new trays.
I'm loving the punch of color that it brings to our living room, as it sits on our coffee table.
Pretty adorable, isn't it? Thanks again, honey!! :)
