Just Look at Those Legs!

Apparently Brocade Home is in the middle of moving warehouse & my order took a little bit longer to process. The console table finally arrived & is a perfect mix of modern & classic.

The front hallway is not very bright & needed something with legs to open up the space. The old chest was too dark, heavy, & not long enough. The space still needs some tweaking, but I think we're headed in the right direction.

New Coffee Table

Yesterday I traveled across the river to a consignment store in search of some old oak t-back chairs. They were there just as I had hoped and not only did I scoop up the chairs, I also found this vintage Lane coffee table. It was in the back room stacked in the corner marked down to $25. The bamboo-style frame was a little dusty & faded, but the glass was nearly flawless. Although it looks pretty good in the photo, as soon as I saw it I pictured this table painted in a glossy white finish. It's taking more than a few cans of spray paint than I anticipated, but it is well on its way.
