My Lucky Day!

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. 
On sale. 
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!
