So, this is the coffee table/ottoman that I have in my living room.

The top lifts up, and comes forward flat, to chest level, when I'm sitting, so I can use it as a dinner table, and watch TV while  I eat.

As you can see, the top has become worn.  I've tried a few different cleaners on it, but none of them worked.  Aside from the top, it is still in great condition.

Will you play my record? One-track mind!

My latest idea to make it look better was to get a heavy table cloth in a pattern I liked that would match the colors in my living room.  I found a tablecloth in a wood pattern that is a nice, sturdy material.

I ordered some pinking shears so I can cut it down to size, and then just cover the top.  I made sure the cloth is 'oversized' so I would get one (or more) replacements so when the initial covering gets worn,  I can replace it with a new one.  I also got two cloths, so I can have somewhere between 4 to 6 coverings all together.  Here is what the new tablecloth looks like, but it hasn't been sized yet.












I cut it down with pinking shears, and attached it to the top with thumbtacks, so I can remove it easily.

Here is what it looks like.  Not perfect, but better than before.

Yeah, I actually like Jameson's better than Guinness. Also better than scotch, which is one of the few spirits I dislike.  :P

I would be tempted to drink Jameson's tonight, except that when I walk into the Usual Watering Hole, Trevor, the hot young blond bartender, has my Glen Livet and soda on the bar before I even ask for it. If he's got the drink already made, I feel I can't very well say that I don't want it and want something else instead.

I'm told by a reliable source that it's the mark of a good bartender to know what his "regulars" drink without having to ask what they want. so that means there's nothing special about me, but it still makes me feel a little special.

Interesting pattern of cloth, but to me the whole thing looks like a "coffin" table with a pall over it. ...

 ;D  :-*

But that's alright. Abbie the genius lab tech on N.C.I.S. sleeps in a coffin. ...

I guess that fits for a zombie fan.   :laugh:

The only person who could use that as a coffin would be a little person.   :laugh:

It's like Cheers for you!  :D

If I had a Cheers, the bartender couldn't do that, because when I go into bars I get different things different times. I like alcohol in most forms: beer, wine, spirits. Except scotch. And I'm not crazy about gin, though I can handle the occasional gin martini. And I don't like anything mixed with a sugary soft drink (e.g., rum and Coke), though an occasional margarita is nice.

Other than that, I'm easy to please, and tend to switch around depending on my mood and the time of year.

It happened again last night!  ;D

I stick with scotch because I know how it will affect me, and, perhaps more importantly, how it won't affect me.

I can take a gin and tonic (with lime) on a hot summer Sunday afternoon, but that's it.

I got started on rum and Coke, so. ...

Jack (Daniels) and Coke is OK, too, not just what I'd drink regularly. That's something I would make for myself at home. Same with a rum and Coke.

I won't touch tequila for anything. I've heard too many horror stories. ...
