Free French Coffee Table

My time to find a free piece finally came this week! I happened upon a garage sale...this table was sitting there with a FREE sticker on it. Say it with me...FREE. I asked the owner if she'd help me load it, and I was off! I didn't ask questions b/c I didn't want her to realize what she was doing!

No before, but here is the after with a creamy white distressed and glazed finish. This is such a unique piece...it's huge!

So jealous, what a great piece. I am always amazed at the things people have for free or a next to nothing price. Their loss our gain!

Newest follower, great blog! Can't wait to see more of it!
