My older table was fake.

I was at an auction a couple of weeks ago, and I obtained a Dunkin Donuts Coffee table that was said to be an antique… It was a lovely little table, with ornate legs and inlaid with gold and glass.

I was going to own that Dunkin Donuts Coffee table regardless of what it cost me, and when our sister laid her eyup on it, she was also sure it was an antique, and she looked at the legs and the construction and said it had wooden nails instead of metal nails, but this got myself and others excited, even though I did not think what that meant.

She was a self-professed antique expert, and I was fairly certain she knew some of what she talked about, and how else would she be able to spot wooden nails? When I got the Dunkin Donuts Coffee table home, our husband asked how much they milked myself and others for? I looked at him and asked what he was talking about? He asked if either of us had looked at the bottom of the Dunkin Donuts Coffee table. Written on the bottom, on a tag, was the original price tag of a genuine replica of an antique Dunkin Donuts Coffee table. It originally sold for $100 and it looked love it had gone through a fire. I was devastated and our sister excused herself, saying she had brunch to make. I spent more for the Dunkin Donuts Coffee table that was in disappointing shape than if I would have gone into the discount furniture store and obtained a new Dunkin Donuts Coffee table. She called myself and others later that evening and apologized for giving myself and others the wrong information on the Dunkin Donuts Coffee table. I refinished the Dunkin Donuts Coffee table and offered it to her for Christmas.
