Hola Friends!  I hope that you had a nice weekend.  Also…hi to my dad…in case he is reading this today.  (He’s the best in the world…just so y’all know. )  😉  Did any of you catch an auction or two or twelve over the weekend?  We didn’t go to any but there were some in our area.  Soooooo….I thought that I would share one of my favorite auction goodies today.  Aren’t you excited?  I thought so.

A couple of years ago, my uncle was here from Oklahoma and he and the Mr. went to an auction.  The only thing that my husband brought back was a wonderful, antique end table.  I was thrilled.  I was elated.  I was tickled that I had a spouse that knew my taste well enough…to bid on something so AWESOME.  I used it for it’s intended purpose for quite a while and then………insert drumroll……………I got a hankerin’ for a new coffee table.  I had just happened to read an article about coffee tables and the proper height that they are supposed to be.  (It took the Mr. a little (long) time to get on the “sawing off the table legs” band wagon.)  My husband begrudgingly measured and sawed the legs off.  Then this heavenly music started playing…..not really…but it did look pretty snazzola!  I have loved it ever since.

FYI:The standard height for a coffee table is 16 to 18 inches or even up to 21 inches.

I see lots of things in this picture that have changed over time but the coffee table is still there.

Have a wonderful Monday, Dirt Roaders! I would LOVE to hear about your favorite auction finds!  Need a coffee table?  Go get your saw!  😉
