A keeper

I've been canvassing the Goodwills and KCM for something to redo.  I'm not that picky, but I do need to actually like the piece before I put that much work into it.  Last week, I finally had a day where I felt like I scored.  I found a coffee table at Goodwill that had promise.  It had nice lines and it was in my price range ($30 but it was 30% off).  This is what it looked like when I brought it home.
After sanding it down and applying an antique white, she was already looking soooooo much better!

I spot sanded those gorgeous legs and put on a light wash.  She was beautiful.  But she needed about a bird?

Yep.  Perfect.

I think she was worth the search.  She's now gracing my unfinished living room.

Cara likes her too.  I think she's a keeper!
