Another Saturday Finds

<
A quick trip to the bank & stop at the thrift to donate a few things resulted in my favorite find of the day! A new coffee table! I was tired of the one we had, not to mention, I think it was too big for the space we have now. So I had been watching Craigslist but hadnt really found anything. And then I saw this. Marked $30. And it was mine! They gave it to me for $25, didnt have to barter, they just rang it up at that price. I love this thrift!



Check out the legs :)




I also found another candlestick. I'm hoping to pry that brass part off so I just have the wood.


I also found this great glass canister. You can never have too many of these.


And this little box that will obviously need repainting.




Here is our old table. Not bad, just needed a change. We've had this for about 8 years. Nice solid wood, and has withstood two toddlers that have now grown into school agers who constantly use it as a chair. And my numerous craft projects.




Real life here, taken before I finished cleaning. You can see how big it is compared to our love seats. When Mike got a deal on two brand new loveseats ($100 a piece, made by the company that makes La-Z-Boy) we knew it was time to replace the old couch & loveseat. Since this room is smaller than what we had when we purchased them, two loveseats seem to fit better than the old couch/loveseat combo. Just need some slipcovers ;).

Check out Southern Hospitality for more great finds!

I like your new coffee table, and all of your other finds, but I LOVE those green chairs in the background! It's the color I want to paint mine!

That coffee table is just gorgeous! I've been looking for one that is similar, but I haven't had any luck yet.
