Ok so about this lesson. Over the course of the last few months I've been decluttering and selling and whatnot. I decided to splurge on the above coffee table. I adore this little table. It's from World Market right here.
It's called the Thad and it retails for $299. The person that helped me with the purchase signed me up for all kinds of discounts upon checkout and it knocked $100 off the price. Like I just said, I adore this little table. My inspiration came from Sid and Ann Mashburn's home.
Pinterest is a dangerous thing ya know? But how chic.
So anyway back to my lesson. I couldn't wait to get it home and unwrap it. I fell in love the minute I saw it in its place. I instantly felt younger and hipper! I found the antique Persian rug at an estate sale and to me it was pretty darn perfect. There is only one problem and that is comfort. If this room were a sitting room only it would have been fine but this is where we watch tv and lounge at night and you can't really comfortably put your feet up on an lucite coffee table. Well you can but it's not comfortable. L was on board all the way but in the end it was me who wanted to be comfortable over stylish. So on Friday I boxed it back up and returned it. All mistakes are just chances to learn and what I learned was that it's probably better to leave well enough alone, that comfort is key and Pinterest creates all kinds of discontent in me.
So everything is back to normal - whatever that is. xo
PS - For a moment I thought about making the blog private and I still might but I will give you warning if I do in case there is a recipe you may want. I love you guys but the internet is getting to be too much for me some days. Thank you for putting up with me. xo
