Welcome to another one of Kathleen's White Wednesdays. For today's post I wanted to share what inspired me to write this post.
Awhile back my mother bought me a subscription to the Oprah Magazine. This month's cover really spoke to me. Do you want to know why? Oh come on play along. Do you think it was the pretty pink flowers that caught my attention, well they did remind me of Spring, but no not it. You are getting closer.
So, do you think it was the white column in the background. I do love a pretty white column. They are so versitle and can be used anywhere. No, not it, keep guessing.
Ok, do you think it was the pretty white mirror that you can barely make out in the background. No, but I love it though.
Or the pretty white chairs with the pink flowers on top. No, but that was a good guess.
Ok, I'll reveal what drew me to this issue. It was the pretty white table that Oprah is sitting on.
I thought I've had a similar white table and have sold it for a good price before. Maybe I should have kept it a bit longer and maybe could have gotten a few more dollars for it. You know when something comes out in a magazine how it seems to skyrocket prices on things. So, I got curious and decided to look at the shopping guide to see just how much the table was.
Are you sitting down?
The table is listed by Circa Antiques for $6800.00. Yep, you read it right. NO need to adjust the screen or get your reading glasses, that's the asking price. Pocket change right? Well, let me tell you, if I could possibly get even half that amount, heck I'd settle for a forth of that amount, I'd be one HAPPY CAMPER or Antiques Dealer. Tell me what your thoughts are? Would you pay this amount for a table like this? It is fab, don't you think, but is it $6800 fab, that's my question.
