The Definition of a Coffee Table

Thanks for stopping by to see what I am up to.
 Don't forget to show me your stuff at Restyled Sundays linky
party every Sunday. There is probably one in progress now.

About two years ago, I stopped at a garage sale late one day and bought this coffee table and two end tables. Since it was late, he gave me all three for $5. I couldn't pass that up then, and probably not now, even though I am on a buying hiatus (so to speak). The other two tables have long ago been refinished and
sold, but this one just sat in the basement waiting for some love.
I painted it grey and really wanted to do something fun with the top.

A few dictionary pages and some Mod Podge and it was looking pretty cool.

I decided to add some of the larger illustrations on top of the rest.
I think it has a shabby chic vibe to it.

Wouldn't this make a fun conversation starter?

I hope someone else loves it as much as I do. Its for sale
at Lone Elm Antiques in Olathe, Kansas.

Sharing at these parties:
