As you may or may not know, I love to thrift for furniture. I think it is the thrill of the hunt along with the fact that I seem to somehow find something fabulous every time. So with our recent move and new condo, I took the opportunity to fill some gaps in our decor (coffee table, wall art, etc.) with some thrift store finds. My latest acquisition is a coffee table that I spotted last week. Now, I do have to say that not everyone knows how to spot pieces that are worthy of a makeover. However, I have a pretty good eye as well as a few resources in my back pocket - one being Mr. Goodwill Hunting. Mr. Goodwill Hunting is a blog about thrifting written by Rashon Carraway and it has inspired me to get out as often as possible to find affordable pieces deserving a makeover. So in my spare time I've hit up some of the thrift stores here in Madison and I have to say I've found some incredible items. I love mixing high and low pieces in my designs, so I'm excited to have one or two go-to thrift spots. So ANYWAY, I saw this coffee table the other day and snatched it up for a measly $9!
As you can see it needed a little bit of cleaning, mainly just the glass which was easy. But beyond that it has a great structure and interesting details. So I gave it a little TLC and here is what it looks like now.
I'm so happy with how it turned out. It looks awesome with it's surroundings. I can't get a great shot of the room because it is long and narrow but here is a glimpse.
What's so great about this is that the table cost around $35 with supplies and everything, PLUS I was able to customize the piece to my liking!
