Cool Buy: Phoenix Work Table @ Crate & Barrel

I'm torn.

On the one hand, this Phoenix Work Table from Crate & Barrel is beautiful in its simplicity. And I love how it looks like something you dug up in grandpappy's barn. (Not MY grandpappy's barn, mind you. His barn would probably contain lots of empty wine bottles and a taxidermy donkey. He's eccentric.)

On the other hand:

All those nooks and crannies make for an awful writing surface. And forget arts & crafts that involve glitter. (may I never utter those words again, God help me.) And you probably shouldn't eat on it lest you fill it with crumbs and attract bugs.

Hmmm....

But it sure is pretty! Practical? I'll let that to you to decide.

$1,499.
