My favorite Christmas Present

Now as most of you know, my father is law is pure gold. Not just because he is super sweet, but he is also an awesome carpenter. So when he asks me what I want for Christmas I always answer a piece of furniture. Totally predictable. This year I wanted a new corner cabinet for our TV. So I got to design my own and drew out a super intricate drawing with very specific measurements and showed them to him. At this point he was probably wanting to trade me in for a new daughter in law.
Ahhhh I die. Isn't it gorgeous? He built this in ONE DAY, except for the doors. Those took about 2 hours another day. Insane right? I made Luke drag it in so I could see it before I paint it, which is happening now. And I'm painting it the wall color, if anyone is curious. Our living room is small and I don't want to make it feel smaller and I kinda want the piece to disappear.
Thanks Santa!
