café table

So I’ve been in the market for a new coffee table for a very long time. I’ve been using an old roommate’s white wicker chest as a make-shift for almost 4 years. I repeat, four years! It was always thought of as temporary until I got my hands on a great coffee table.

Problem is, I could never put my finger on which style I craved: modern? antique? simple? weird? Just make a decision, already! Many meals are consumed on this couch and I just wanted a large, flat surface on which to set drinks, plates, condiments, what-have-you. I’ve had it with wobbly, tilty glasses and ketchup bottles!

Today I’m proud to announce that I’ve finally pulled the trigger. My only requirements: long, flat, and $30 or under. Say hello to this chunk of goodness:

Found on Craigslist (of course) for $25. Yesss! Now, I won’t lie and tell you that I love this table, because I don’t. But it masculines-up the living room, looks kinda cool and, most importantly, will allow Evan and me to watch Californication while gorging ourselves without fear of my wine glass toppling over due to faulty crevices. Ah, how much simpler life will be.

with anticipation

Craigslist has been sooo disappointing lately. No one has posted anything good on it in forever. But. The other day while I was clicking through with disgust at the cheap, warped particle-board bookshelves and moldy, misshapen frat-nasty couches (no one wants to pay for that shizzz), I came across a real beaut. It’s a pretty significant piece of furniture, so I’m really excited that they offered to deliver it–score! And it’s coming tomorrow! I can’t wait, I can’t wait, I can’t wait…this is going to be better than Christmas! Can you guess what it is??
