Tequila Furniture

After much searching (and by much, I mean months of searching within a 350 mile radius) for a hutch for my dining room, I found one at World Market. It was a little more than I wanted to pay...until a coupon came out for 40% off 1 item.

Well, this particular piece of furniture comes in 2 separate pieces. So, I brought one coupon to one World Market to buy the bottom part. Then I brought another coupon to a different World Market and bought the top part.

Each piece was about 150 lbs, boxed. I somehow slid the pieces out of my truck and finagled them into the house. I opened them up downstairs, scooted, flopped and turned to get it to the stairs and then took about 30 minutes each trying to push them up the stairs. It probably wasn't the smartest idea. There were a few times I thought for sure the piece was going to push me back down the stairs.

However, while pushing these large pieces of wood up the stairs, my face was buried into them.....and I thought for sure I was going to hurl on the stairs. The wood reeked of tequila. I thought for sure the wood was made of tequila some how. Just the slight smell of it brought me back to New Years, and ramming my head into the car door via the fire hydrant. It was like seeing the drunkest parts of my life flash before my eyes.

I'm not sure how to get the smell out. I'm sure I need to wipe the thing down with something. Otherwise, every time I walk past the thing....I'm going to have terrible flashbacks!

Karma is a bitch, huh?

Personally, I wouldn't fight it. Just find a furniture cleaner with the lime smell and make it part of the "ambiance". :-) Adds a bit of "you" to the mix....
