FIRST of ALL, go to yesterdays post and COMMENT for a chance to win that fabulous CSN GIFT CERTIFICATE! Come ON, it only takes a moment!
WE finally did it! We got a new (actually REALLY OLD) coffee table. I know this industrial style is very trendy but I LOVE it! Plus with 3 kids and 14 adopted children (not really, but you know what I mean), it's VERY helpful to get something with pre-made CHARACTER, ie: dents, dings, scratches and rust. For what we spent, it really won't matter that the industrial style may not be around forever, now if we had gotten this one from Restoration Hardware (which we COULD never anyway) I'd want it to last forever! I had admired these tables EVERYTIME we went there but they were too expensive. Today however, they were 50% OFF! WOOOHOOO
We went to the flea market today to look for crystal door knobs to pull back the sheers in our yet to be revealed master bedroom. (It's still a work in progress) We came home with 2 crystal door knobs, one more large milk glass bubble bowl and a new coffee table! We spent less than $200.00! Good DEAL! This thing weighs a TON! There were 2 there and this was the smaller of the 2 but slightly taller than the other. The store is CAVERNOUS so it didn't look that big there, but once we got it home it's a perfect size and the larger one would have been a bit too large. Oh and I don't know what that random thing is under my couch. I didn't see it till right now! So what do you think? Do you like it? Did I score? BTW, Check out the whimages store over there on the right in a day or two, I'm going to be updating it with some new goodies! YAY!
EDIT: This morning Matt put a coat of beeswax on the entire thing as a mild protectant. I didn't think I could love it anymore than I did but I DO~! I'll repost photos later. ;-)
EDIT: This morning Matt put two coats of beeswax on the table and I BIG HUGE PUFFY HEART IT even more! Oh and if you look next to the built in, don't mind the drywall patches. He hasn't had a chance to repaint the board and batten wall. Just keeping it real girlies! ;-)
We've so many projects going on right now, right this minute my wonderful husband is upstairs painting the new crown molding in our bedroom! Can't wait to show you the bedroom reveal!
