Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

Life Is Short...So Are Adjustable Height Tables!

In my Spring Break post, I mentioned how my parents crammed their van full and drove from Ohio to Texas to stay in a condo on the beach in Port Aransas for the month of March.  Let me tell you, they packed practically everything but the kitchen sink.  Literally.  Clothes, tool boxes, fishing poles, a laptop, a printer, bicycles, a sewing machine... and even a Lifetime table!  Seriously!  My mom packed her 4' fold-in-half adjustable height table so she could use it as her sewing table.  (Thank goodness its compact for easy transportation because they needed every inch of cargo space they could get.) 

Mom set the table up right in front of the windows so she could enjoy the ocean view while she sewed.  She loves to make quilts as a hobby, but I also took advantage of her skills and had her take tucks in some of my skinny-mini son's shorts and a fix shirt for me.

Luckily, she didn't need to pack her Lifetime chairs.  She just borrowed chairs from the condo's social room which was completely filled with Lifetime tables and chairs!

The portability of Mom's Lifetime table also proved handy on St. Patrick's Day when several of the condo neighbors got together for a festive potluck.  Mom carried her Lifetime table up to the neighbors so they would have more eating space that night.  Here's a funny story though.  She took the table up earlier in the day and just left it with the neighbor without explaining anything about it.  When they went back up that night to eat, the neighbor said, "Thanks for bringing the table, but I think we'll just use it to set food on since it's much too low to eat on."  Really?  Well, turns out the neighbor didn't realize the table was adjustable in height so she when she unfolded the legs it automatically set up at the lowest kid height!  Ooops!  I guess the adjustable legs aren't always intuitive.  So, lessoned learned, if you loan out your adjustable height table, you might want to be sure and mention how to raise and lower the legs.  :)

Hey...We were on Danny Lipford!
Last weekend, we had a chance to finally see our sheds on national TV. Our shed was a featured product on "Today's Homeowner with Danny Lipford."

About Danny: Danny Lipford, a veteran remodeling contractor, is an expert on homes and home improvement. As Host and Executive Producer of the nationally syndicated television show, Todays Homeowner with Danny Lipford, Danny helps viewers keep up with the latest home trends and understand the steps and products involved with both small and large home projects.

Dare We Hope?
Today, here in Utah, its warm and sunny. Buds on my flowers and trees are starting to emerge. Snow is harder and harder to find. Dare we hope that Spring has arrived? I love being outside, and look forward to preparing the yard for summertime. Part of that preparation for me this year is getting a new table for the deck. Our previous table was given to us and we learned the hard way that it isnt snow and water friendly. Basically the table top is sitting in a heap of rubble on the deck. My wife and I like to hide from the kids and have breakfast outside. So I think this year I am going to get the Lifetime Bistro Set. If you havent seen this yet, its pretty nice. Made from Polystyrene, which is a type of plastic that looks like wood, this table is definitely snow and water friendly. It comes with a table and two chairs. Sin...
Who doesn’t love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations – and my personal favorite – pumpkin carving?! Love my Pumpkin Carving Table!
Halloween is such a fun time of year! Who doesnt love costumes, face paint, spooky decorations and my personal favorite pumpkin carving?! So last night, my husband and I set out on our pumpkin carving adventure. My husband not only carves pumpkins, but he is amazing at shaving in faces, and doing all sorts of cool stuff. Over the years, he has helped me get more and more into it as well. Since I knew this was going to get pretty messy, I didnt really want to use my wooden kitchen table, so I decided to pull out my trusty 4-Foot Fold-In-Half Lifetime Table. We live in a smaller apartment, so this is the perfect table for us. It is super easy to store and fi...
