New Coffee Table

There's an advantage to being decisive.  You know immediately when you can't walk away from something.  There are few regrets.  It's one of my strong suits - that and being able to listen to a baby scream for hours on end without ripping my hair out.

This weekend was the annual Audubon townwide yardsale and I came across this beauty that stopped me in my tracks.

It's big, it's bold, it's beveled and it's beautiful!

It's also a $450 designer table that I got for........

Fifteen bucks!!  SCORE!!  I love how it compliments the mirror above the sofa.

The coffee table that I had in here before was moved in from the Family Room (had to get that out of baby's way!).

That was another bargain at $20 (Craig's List), and it was fine, but it lacked the wow factor I was going for in this room.

It was also a little small for the scale of the sofa.

The new one is so rustic and even looks a little bit chippy.  I absolutely LOVE it!

And even better, I can add more accessories now.  And who doesn't love to accessorize??

The stems and mercury glass candleholders are from Michaels.

This little silver candle I got recently at a yardsale for fifty cents.  I almost never pass up a good candle at a yardsale.  You can always use them!

This tray was a Marshall's purchase as were the faux pears.  The cloche I got at a barn sale.

I gave the other table to my little bro.  I've been helping him decorate his new office nearby and he needed a coffee table.  I'll have to take pictures of his new office for a post someday.

Thanks for stopping by and have a fabulicious day!

It looks great, Kim! Can't believe it was only $15!! You are the queen of bargain hunting. If you didn't live so far away, I'd hire you to be my personal shopper ;) Love all your pretty accessories, too.

Love that new coffee table! The scrolled legs just make it. Isn't it fun getting a new piece of furniture and seeing how it changes the room? BTW, you asked about my artwork above the chest in one of my posts, it used to be a fireplace screen. I dismounted the easal on the back and hung it on the wall. It was a purely decorative screen and much to small for my fireplace opening. Thanks for the compliment!

That coffee table looks great!!! It's in much better proportions with your sofa than the old one. What a great find!!!

I know that feeling when you can't walk away from something. I got that feeling with my coffee table when someone threw it away at my old apartment complex!!!

Gorgeous room!
