Craig's List Find

I found a great bench on Craig's List this past week and couldn't be happier about it. I have been in search of a narrow coffee table to fit our narrow living room... we do want space to be able to walk through it after all! Thanks to a wonderful lady named Courtney, I found a "rustic" Pottery Barn bench on Craig's List for sale, since she also labeled the bench as being a coffee table. I stole this picture off of the pottery barn website to show you what it looks like. They still have the smaller and larger versions of the bench/table for sale for $149 and $249...yikes! Needless to say, I snagged my new coffee table for less than 1/4 of its original price- happy day.... It is a little scratched up, but I should have it looking good in no time. I would take a picture of it, but Brandon won't let me put it on our living-room hardwood floors till I put some felt circles on the bottom on the legs. He sure is cautious when it comes to protecting the floors he refinished : ) This is actually my first Craig's List purchase ever, but after this find, it may become my new favorite place to shop for home furnishings. Courtney gave me a tour of her beautiful home when I picked up the bench today; let me tell you, it was gorgeous. I loved two of her wall colors so much, I may just use them when we finally paint our walls. On a humorous note, both the wall colors came from the Benjamin Moore Pottery Barn Collection...nice!

Ohhh I like it!!! Once you get the felt circle things, you have to take a picture of it in your living room. :)
