This past weekend I took a trip to Goodwill and found a coffee table for $30. It was just what I wanted so I snatched it up (I tried to talk them down, but they wouldn't budge!)
I've been wanting a new one for when we move in a couple months. The one we have now is from IKEA and although it gets to job done, it's just not my style. It's the "modern, sleek, bachelor pad" look and I like the more "country living, semi-rustic" look.
So here is a before picture (this is after I sanded it..there was green paint on all the edges and on the legs...it was painted very poorly and was a pain to get off!)
I LOVEEE it.
I think I've walked by it 25 times just to stare at it. I love the wood grains on the top and the crisp white bottom. I may do a little distressing before it's all said and done, but for now..I love it like that.
For $40 in all, I am very pleased with the way it turned out.
If I can just sell my old one on Craiglist for $25, I will be pleased as punch. :)
