I am so excited, first because I was on stand by for jury duty yesterday and didn't have to go!! Woo Hoo!! (jumping for joy) Second I scored at Ballard Designs. Since I was on standby I had nothing on my calendar for yesterday. I called late Tuesday night and found out I was excused, so Wednesday was wide open! I know many of you are familiar with Ballard Designs. Their catalog probably lands in your mailbox or inbox on a regular basis.
We are lucky enough in Atlanta to have two Ballard's outlet stores (Ballard's Backroom). The bigger of the stores is a little further away, but since my calendar was clear and Mr. TMD is out of town I grabbed a coffee and headed out. You never know what they will have, or what shape it will be in, but there are some real bargains to be had.
I have been on the hunt for a narrow console type table for our family room and as luck would have it I found one. It was $100 less than the other ones just like it because it is missing the glass for the shelves. They all needed a little paint. The price was already great and then it was was another 30% off! So, I loaded it up and brought it home.
Here she is. I plan to do a little spray painting and am thinking it will look better with antiqued mirror shelves instead of the clear glass they had. Stay tuned.
