I would have loved to have found a real vintage piece or just a piece of junk that could have been re-imagined. But, I've been looking for a long time and just haven't found the right one. It' kind of hard to bite the bullet and pay for new furniture, most of ours is thrifted, found in a barn or alley, or bought at a flea market. But, this was on a really great sale and I know I'm not going to tire of it soon.
I think it's a good pick for our space and we're going to love it for years to come.
