A Project To Come

I've been hoping to work on some more furniture, but I've also been hoping to come across a great deal. Today was the day!

I found two tables (an end table and a coffee table) on Craigslist for $25!! They are both solid oak. Scratched up, but with beautiful bones and ready to be painted! Although I'm not yet sure what color I'm doing,I'm so excited.

Enjoy the pictures and I will hopefully soon have a reveal.

{Ignore the fact that they are in my van/garage...the only downside to the solid part is that they are so heavy and I can't move them myself!}

Why I'm so excited:

The Caroline Bedside Table from Pottery Barn for $349


The Preston Cocktail Table from Ballard Designs for $349

I love the coffee table too. I would have paid the $25 just for the side table, but to have the coffee table too. Such a deal. And look at those chunky legs! (only a compliment when talking about furniture or children whose age can still be discussed in number of months)
