I turned the corner and there was this coffee table in all it's weathered, chippy glory!
but the story doesn't actually start off with the light shining on the table and music playing...no, someone else spied it at the same time as I did but got to the ticket first! PANIC... so we got to talking and she said if she didn't get it I could have it, so I
waited stalked her, no really I did! She was taking FOREVER to decide... I tried to act like I was looking at other things, when really all I wanted was that coffee table in my car going home with me! I was starting to sweat ... when all of a sudden ... she wasn't going to take it! WHAT?! I tried to play it cool like "yeah, your other finds are definitely better.." I held on to that ticket like it was the winning lottery numbers!
I LOVE the worn edges and all the deep grain it shows off... it was a little rough around the edges so I just lightly sanded it and now it is perfect for the little guy!
the top looks like an old piece of barn wood .. I wonder if someone made this table?
perfect spot for my favorite magazines and of course some fresh flowers...
SIGH...I AM SMITTEN
