Vintage Coffee Table

I bought this sweet little vintage coffee table and a two tiered end table for $10 ($5 ea) at a yard sale.   Both of them got a fresh coat of white paint today...thank you H.   I don't know if this is the permanent place for the coffee table, but here is where she is going to have her picture taken.




She had seen a lot of wear over the years....


but I think she looks great now!
I think our new coffee table will make a perfect place for a cup of tea.

Don't you?
