Friday Find

For a while, we had been feeling that our coffee table was a little too narrow and a little too long.

One day this winter, I was in our Goodwill, and I saw a coffee table right in the middle of all the other furniture. I wedged my way in only to discover that it looked to be the perfect shape and size and was only $10! Of course I thought, if this doesn't work out, JC will just be out of lunch money for one day! What's a girl to do? I had her loaded in the back of the Yukon, and I brought her home!

This is the before...not really my taste (reddish wood with hunter green accents).

Of course, this table was not in the best of shape, but I knew that I would be painting it so I didn't worry too much about the scratches.

I was very happy when I opened the drawer and saw this label...

I honestly didn't spend a lot of time on this piece. I quickly put two coats of grayish-white paint on with one coat of polyurethane. I found those knobs at W*rld Market, but I am not sure I am sold on them just yet.

And here's the finished product. The size and proportion are much better for our space.

Maybe a week later, I was flipping through my current P*ttery Barn catalog, and guess what jumped out at me?
Isn't this table gorgeous? This is the Newberry Rectangular Coffee Table. I do love this table, but my checking account LOVES the $689.99 that I did not spend to buy it!

Happy Friday Y'all!

Love this. So, I went to a flea market today and Im working on "seeing" something in furniture. I am going to show a friend of mine this. She purchased a table it was black, but her deal wasn't $10 she got it for $50.
