My Great Find

September 18, 2014
I have been looking for that perfect table for my foyer for a long time (like 15 years long!).
I wanted a table that had a lower shelf, one that was longer and taller than most (this has
everything to do with Christmas decorating- something you will see later), and one that had a drawer (or drawers).  Imagine my surprise while I was shopping at World Market and came across this:
The dimensions were perfect:  approx. 71 inches long, 15 1/2 deep and almost
32 inches high.
Two drawers and a lower shelf.  It was very heavy and very sturdy.
Not my color choice but that could be easily changed.
So I went home and waited for it to go on sale. At the time it was priced
at $250, which I felt was reasonable considering the dimensions, but alas,
I was on a mission.   I had a 30% off coupon that I
planned on using as well.  Finally, after many months of waiting and checking
the website, it went on sale.  I jumped.
I used my 30% off coupon and World Market was offering FREE SHIPPING.
So I bought this:
Primed it with this:
Then painted it with this:
(in white gloss)
Added two of these from my collection:
and VIOLA:


What’s your great find?
