It started out innocently enough on Saturday morning..picking up an antique coffee table I won from a local ebay seller for $10 back when I hated the way the dark coffee table/ottoman looked in the living room: Ebay $10 Coffee Table And because Ikea was on the way home from picking up the table, we […]
