A few weeks ago when I shared my first "Shop and Style" post with you, I hinted that one of the pieces I featured might have come home with me.
Well, did it ever!
I love my thrifted coffee table that's been the living room for several years now, but have had my eyes open for something a bit more substantial. Ultimately, I have a glass coffee table in mind for the living room, but when my sister texted me a photo of this brass chest at The Rink, I jumped at the chance to go look at it.
I've long adored Carmel's pretty piece, and was so excited when this similar piece turned up in my area. I was hopeful that it might be from the pricey Sarreid brass brand, but when I got there to see it there were no identifying labels in it and the handles looked different, so I'm thinking it's a replica.
That's ok, though, I love it anyway.
It's not in perfect condition, there are some scrapes from wear and the top is fairly scratched up. However, I knew I would most likely always have a tray on it, and all of that just adds more character, right? ;)
I love the drawers for extra storage,
and it also complements the small brass trunk I bought from Craigslist a few years ago nicely.
It's so interesting how changing up just one piece in a room can change the entire look and feel of a room.
Like I said, I still love the old one, so it's just going in storage for now, but it's always fun to change things up.
Hope your week is off to a great start. Enjoy your Monday, friends!
