I was looking for a table to fit this spot in the living room. I wanted something roomy where, theoretically, two people could casually sit and enjoy a cup of coffee and a conversation. I had been searching for a table on the cheap that I could paint myself. However, when I found this solid wood drop-leaf table that had already been given a shabby white paint job, I just couldn't leave it behind. It cringed me to pay $62 for it, but I love it and it saved me from my never ending search. Now, it just needs a lamp.
I found this table at this great little shop, Willow Lake, in O'fallon, MO. I will do a post about this store soon; it showcases some great found objects, architectural pieces, home decor, and local artists. Eileen, the owner, has great taste.
