As you may know, I have THREE 3-year-olds in the house. They are very curious and rambunctious, and, well, typical toddlers.
When I gave my living room a mini-makeover back in the summer,
a big element for me was the perfect coffee table.
I searched and stalked Craigslist and consignment stores for weeks for a round coffee table
until I finally found this little cutie on Craigslist for $15.
It was a great deal and I actually love this little table.
But, here's the deal.
When you have 3 toddlers in the house with you all day, you cannot leave anything out within their reach that you don't want touched or broken. That little photo above? I took that while they were taking a nap. Those flowers and books would have survived about 2.4 seconds!
So, for months now I have lived with a naked table. And one that the kids constantly climb and sit on.
Finally, it hit me. This just ain't gonna work. What I need is an ottoman!
Oh yeah. It's not really in our budget to buy a new piece of furniture. I forgot about that part.
But, of course, that didn't stop me from online-window shopping on Saturday morning.
Then, like magic, it happened!
I found the deal of the century!
This adorable little ottoman had managed to survive all of the Missoni for Target craze
and was on CLEARANCE for $34.98!!! Regular price was $99!
This is just too good to be true.
So, I ordered it.
It arrived today and here it is in it's new home!
The color was listed as "aqua" but it's really more of a baby blue. I took that gamble knowing that it may not be the exact right color. The colors that I've been using in the living room
are more teal and turquoise, but I still think I can make it work.
All in all, I think it was a great deal and I'm happy with my little ottoman!
There are still several left in different colors and designs! Better hurry!
