That whole concept of it never hurting to at least ASK, is so true, isn’t it? Because more often than not, the answer to the question is a ‘yes’.
My kids always know that when they ask us for something and there is a pause followed by a ‘we’ll see‘ it means that the odds are probably ‘ever in their favor’. 😉
So when I paid a visit to one of my favorite second-hand furniture stores and saw this huge coffee table sitting there nestled between two end tables I figured it didn’t hurt to at least ask about it.
You see, they had it priced as a set. But I didn’t need end tables. I just wanted the coffee table. Like, really wanted it!
So I asked them if they would separate the set and just sell me the coffee table. And they paused. And then they said, “we’ll see”.
And then I knew that I would be bringing this baby home with me!
And I also knew exactly how I was going to transform it to be just perfect for my living room!
Have you tried Chalky Finish Paint from Americana Decor? This stuff is AMAZING!!
What I love the most about this paint is that it dries incredibly quickly and that one little can of paint was more than enough to give the table two coats.
I decided to keep the wood finish on the top and only paint the base because I really love when there is that contrasting tone.
The drawers are enormous and I always love it when a new piece provides more storage!
I had known for some time that I probably needed a bigger coffee table in this room but I just could never figure out exactly what I wanted.
But once we got this piece made over and put into the room, it was like it had always been there. Don’t you just love when that happens?
The odds were definitely in my favor this time and I’m so glad that I asked! 🙂
