I have been searching craigslist for awhile for a simple coffee table for our living room. I thought what I was wanting was going to be simple to find. I didn't want anything fancy, no glass inserts, & it had to be cheap! After countless times browsing the site I gave up and decided to just not try to hard and if it comes along I will go for it.
On Saturday we went to a local flea market and I found this shelf thingy. It looked like someone took 2 small tables and just placed them on top of each other to make a shelf. So I asked Seth if he thought he could take them apart without destroying them. He looked at it closer and saw that they were just nailed together. They were exactly what I was looking for. Small, simple & for only $6.50 it was the perfect price!
The bottom of the feet were kind of rough so I wanted to put something on the bottom to keep from scratching the floor. I couldn't find my felt so I crocheted some tiny circles and glued them onto the feet. Works just as well! :)
This works a whole lot better than the basket I was using in place of a coffee table! And I have 2 of them... even better!
