Maybe you can relate: you buy a cute sweater. The one you’ve been eyeing that finally went on sale. You love your sweater – it’s so soft! So versatile! You can make it acceptable to wear every day by layering clothes and accessories! But then, just as your serious crush begins to burst into full fledged romance – IT PILLS. Your sweater betrays you by exploding into a diseased, pill-ridden mess, and you wonder what you were thinking when you took it home. “Laura,” you’re asking, “what on earth does this have to do with furniture?” I’ll tell you – that’s exactly what my table did to me.
Get ready for an epic story. A story complete with loss, renewal, a battle, and true love!
*Ahem* I may be overselling it a little. But the truth is, there were some old shutters that got lost in an attic, I fought some ladies to actually obtain said shuttersat an estate sale, and then my husband (who must truly love me), helped me load them up and take them home. See? Everything I promised.
But seriously, these shutters were worth it. Just look at this baby. I mean, the PATINA…. *drool*
