Garage Sale Gold

Hopefully you all had a great weekend and enjoyed the semi-summer weather! I had a great weekend. I got to go to one of my favorite sporting events, grilled out, hit up the farmer's market, and made a major garage sale find! Usually I'm not a huge fan of garage sales because I don't like the frenzied atmosphere (looks like I won't ever make it in a NY sample sale), but I made a quick stop at one with a friend and got a great coffee table for $5!!

Ignore the fingerprints all over the glass!! I would have cleaned it up, but it's going in storage for a few months until I get my place and who really wants to clean on Saturday? There is also another small piece of glass that goes on the bottom rack.

Here's another less fingerprinty shot! I love the streamline design of the table, and the fact that it isn' t a visually heavy piece.  Since I have a small apartment I wanted a coffee table that would be chic and useful but blend into the back ground. I'm also really excited about the bottom rack, I'm debating whether to use it to house magazines/interesting coffee table books, or to hold more practical things such as coasters and remotes.
Happy Sunday/ Mother's Day.  A special Mother's shout out to my mom, the best mentor/shopping companion I could ever have. (To this day she still picks out better clothes for me than I ever could for my self!)

  1. OMG, that's a good find! Why didn't I go with you?! I would put some cute books on the bottom rack and get a cute tray for the randoms!
