I Make Emily Henderson Cry

Oh Emily. I’m so sorry. I do realize you are completely distraught with some people’s irreverent taste in ghastly sofas, but I know you’re really only masking your sadness because you peeked at my front room. Charlie Hendo has been gently wiping the tears streaming down your face and cooing oh so sweetly, “Don’t cry momma.” But that Craigslist hairpin table was just not right, was it? And not even a cute giggle from your little man could make it better.

I knew it right after I placed it there. It wasn’t perfect. You’ve probably been sitting in some fabulous Mid Century Modern closet, painted in bright white, screaming at the ceiling (with gorgeous wooden beams, obvs), “It’s hideous! Yes, hairpins are having a moment, but that table is wrong! So! So! SO WRONG! Wrong height! Wrong length! Wrong color! JUST PLAIN OLD WRONG!” Nothing can console you.

I Make Emily Henderson Cry

Yep, it’s that time again. Time to show you how the imperfect nooks of disaster in my home make Emily Henderson cry tears of sadness. Today I’m going to feature my guest bedroom dresser. You may remember seeing a picture of it on my to-do list post (and yes, I’m still hacking away at that sucka). This nook is still a work in progress as are most nooks in my home, but let’s just have a gander, shall we?

Gasp. Oh sweet kitten, I would not be surprised if you just fell to the floor in sheer and utter disappointment. Quick, someone help Emily up before she wrinkles that adorable floral pullover! Plus, it might make Charlie cry to see her in such a state. And no one wants to make a baby cry.
