I love it when I get a call from a friend who has a good eye for junk on the curb. Minnie called me with a good score a few weeks ago. It was bulk pick up day, and someone broke up with their coffee table. It was really sad. Not just normal sad, but also because a bird pooped on it. SIGH. I know. Sob story.
Regardless, I knew it was perfect. That X-base with THAT tray top... I was in love. My husband didn't mind. In fact, I think he could totally envision it after I gave it a little love. The glorious words left his mouth, "I hope we keep this. " My heart was overjoyed.

Here's how this side of our living room looks now:
Thanks for visiting!
Keep up, Honey!
