I was unexpectedly downtown (Atlanta) this week
because Mollie had a little dental emergency
(not the lucky part of this story)
and I decided to swing by the Salavation Army store
on my way back to the 'burbs.
Did you know the Salvation Army store has sales?
Well, I did not.
I'm often late to the party, so to speak.
The parking lot was packed.
People were double parked. I couldn't get in, then I pulled into a small open space and a guy yelled that I couldn't park there because the big trucks were coming and I had to pull out on a road I didn't know and circle around.
I almost left but for some reason I did circle back and park on the street and walk back to the store. I figured that all the people already in the know about the sale and jamming the parking lot had gotten all the "good stuff" but right there in the window was a dream piece.
Discounted from the already awesome Salvation Army great price!
( Like less than $40.00)
I was giddy!
The size of my car is no deterrent.
I act like I still drive a Suburban :)
I drove straight home, booted the previous coffee table right out the room
and brought this beauty in.
( Chloe was giddy, too! Haha!)
Yes, we are those people who have dogs on the furniture.
I did not say "let" because we didn't let her.
She just decided that spot was hers
and she's been right there ever since. Mollie calls her "Princess"!
It's everything I love in a coffee table.
Big. Bamboo. And caning!!
I know that it would look so much better sitting on a beautiful rug.
But Chloe eats rugs.
Sisal, bamboo, jute, wool, hand hooked. She loves all flavors of rugs.
So hardwoods it is.
I had to pull out some accessories I had stashed and start styling it up!
I haven't finished tweaking it but we all love it!
