As you'll see in a second, our end tables were nothing special. When I moved in with the Hubs, he didn't have end tables at all (he'd just put his glass on the floor if he wasn't near the coffee table), so I pranced over to IKEA and bought some cheap thing that was "good enough" for the time being.
|The baskets were added later for storage.|
Yeah... dark, boxy, and that glass top is a crumb magnet. Super attractive when I forget to clean underneath it (which is all the time). They've been on my list of updates for a while.
Thankfully, I found a couple of things that are more interesting:
(I apologize for the blown out and/or dark pictures. It's hard to get a good shot when you only have one window in an 18'x12' room.)
The white table, which Mr. Shabby Chic is very excited about, was $38 from the last craft show I did, and the metal "school table," as we're calling it, was $15 from the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.
Not only did they free us from the matchy-matchy tables we had before, but they're several inches taller, which means the light is better over there. Plus, I didn't have to paint either of them! I just scooted the old ones out of the way and plopped these down. Love it.
Have you done any furniture upgrades lately? Or found anything sweet at a thrift store? Is furniture the last thing on your mind this time of year?
