Close But No Cigar

During one of my daily Craigslist hunts for a brass coffee table I came across a posting for a "Coffee Table with Matching Side Tables" for $50 in Plainsboro. I excitedly clicked the title and saw this:



At first I was pretty stoked and was all ready to shoot them an email. But since it was early on in my daily search I decided to take a second and look around the site a little more. I found another posting for "Furniture" in Plainsboro and it turned out to be the same coffee table set along with a bed frame and some other items.


So on closer inspection I realized they weren't as great as I wished they would be. The tables appeared to be not of the greatest quality, most likely not even brass, and I would have needed to paint the frame to achieve the look I wanted. Plus they were in Plainsboro which is pretty far and out of the way from anywhere I usually go. Also, I really want another shelf underneath, but that is of course only on my Wish list and not totally a deal-breaker, but in this case it only worked against these tables. I wanted to want them more but they really weren't exactly what I was looking for and with new Craigslist posts daily I didn't want to settle. So they were close, but not close enough, and the search continues...
