I was a bit iffy about the ikea tables we were currently using, they were a tad flimsy. I like a coffee table I can rest my feet on after a long day.
I also found that colorful book on the side in a pile of free books on someones stoop. The cover is hand screen printed, and numbered in pencil on the inside. It's filled with weird lofty poetry, but the cover is cool. Not to mention the typewriter, which my Aunt Gloria was awesome enough to send to me. She just had it lying around her house, and she knew I would appreciate it. Thanks, Glo!
It is a bit beat up, but I feel like for this kind if style of furniture it "goes". And check out the map detailing! So cool. The map is pretty much what had sold us on it. I really started to show through and shine once I attacked it with some Pledge. It's previous owners were most likely a bunch of "bros" because inside the draw were some xbox manuals, a remote, and some lighters. Something tells me that maybe they didn't admire this guy as much, which makes me happy to appreciate it and give it a second life!
