Yard Sale Score/Living Room Addition

On a whim, David and I decided to take a little stop at a yard sale down the street from my in-laws the other day. I immediately fell in love with a certain brass and glass coffee table for a mere $20. It had slight wear and tear, but that's what drew me to it. The brass is now more of an antiqued gold and it looks divine!

I had been looking at similar glass ones online to replace my heavy and dark ottoman that was currently in the living room. It was fine when we had a lighter rug, but with the addition of the HSN rug, it just was too dark.

For $20 this table came straight home with us and found a new little home in our living room. we are contemplating adding a bottom shelf for more dimension and storage.

Keep coming back for more reveals on our new {ok, thrifted, craigslisted, and/or yard saled} living room!

you are find some great stuff lately! I've been visiting these online, and they are pricey, so good spot.

looks like it had a second shelf at some point, maybe it just got broken?
