Happy 4th of July weekend to all of my US Thrift Hunting blogger friends!
Whilst yard sales aren't as plentiful on a holiday weekend I hope you all managed some great finds!
I'm super excited about what I brought home...though it was quite a task to acquire it.
If you've been following my blog a little you probably remember how frustrated I've been with changing up our Den. I can't find the right pillows or table & just overall not happy with the space. I moved the oversize ottoman back, returned the brown pillows, and picked up these new Yellow & Color Burst ones from West Elm this weekend. I think they are OK, but not perfect. What do you think???
So on to my find...
A couple of weeks ago I shared my envy when Morgan at The Brick House found a perfect coffee table for their room on Craigslist...and I knew it would be perfect in my room too. Our ottoman is ok, but there's no where to put drinks & we really need a harder surface. So guess what....I FOUND ONE! Well, not exactly the same, but pretty darn close! Yesterday I was scrolling on Craigslist and thought "What the Hay", and checked in San Diego listings. We had nothing going on & it's not too far of a drive...when low & behold I found the pics on this listing!
I called, the table was still available & for only $75 and a drive to San Diego it was mine. Sounds easy, but with the 4th of July traffic it took 4 hours to get there. Regardless, I've got my project for the rest of the weekend. The table is great. I'm going to sand & stain it a little darker & reseal the travertine & I'll have some pics for you next week (maybe with different pillows, lol). We were all exhausted after our drive, but hopefully it was worth it in the end!
I hope that you have a safe and fun 4th whatever your day brings & I can't wait to see all of your Thrifty Things....so once again I'm linking up to Flea Market Finds & Thrift Share Monday.
Cheers ~ Lara
