First off, my leg is on the mend!! whoop whoop
So being able to, I went hunting for a better proportioned coffee table.
I searched in all the places, I thought I would find one, but I didn't find one to even try to like.
A whole lot of end tables, though.
I was leaving the last store and heading home, tired, disappointed, cofffe tableless.
I really needed some coffee and I didn't know of any, in that part of town.
So I took a side trip and stopped at another store I had given up on months ago.
I figured what the hey, I had a nickel for parking and it gave me exactly 5 mins to look.
Then, giving up I spied this little gem for 15 dollars!!!
I think I literarly jumped for joy, and squealed a little.
I ran to the cash register and told them I would love to purchase the coffee table and I only had 2 mins left to do it. They told me to pull into the building and they would load me up.
That was when I did the happy dance, to their amusement.
It's not often I can out hyper a 16 year old, but I did at that moment.
So here it is
What do you think?
It's solid wood and a little flaky but I see visions for it.
Kinda like this.
Thinking it looks a lot better than the previous one, that was longer than my couch.
I switched out the knobs,and did a paint treatment to fake the metal look on the drawers.
Although I am not completely done (end of feet still not painted)
I am pleased with it and now need to seal the top and maybe pin-stripe around the drawers.
Maybe put a stencil on top before I seal it.....hmmmmm
oh the paint color is a darker gray than seen, can't ever get these photos real to color.
