I’m going through a phase where I want a total revamp to our house…I’m looking at your Love it or List it. Damn you and all your beautiful home renos! I mean clearly I’m not about ready to dump $50,000 for a fresh new look, but I don’t think buying a new coffee table, or some new dining room chairs is a far reach to switch up the feel of our main living room.
Our coffee table has seen better days. It did look like new…once. Chris spilled a piping hot cup of tea on it stripping off some sort of finish, not to mention the bumper corners can’t be removed because of some super human tape of sorts, and Raisin’s endless snacks and driving his cars all over it…it’s seen a lot of love in the last 4 years. How long does someone keep a coffee table anyways? I STILL remember the glass table my parents owned when I was a wee toddler. That thing was long gone in my teens. So, I’m thinking an upgrade to our Urban Barn table has had a good run considering I got it at a steal of a deal.
The new look I’m going for is rustic, or cottag-ey. I like the feel of reclaimed wood and wouldn’t be opposed to it being a fun shade of teal, or maybe a worn white look. The thing is I can find a TON online, but I’m a I need to see it physically before I buy it kinda gal. Also I’m horrible at judging the size of something before it’s in the surroundings of our own furniture. But if I find the right coffee table for the right price online…ya never know. The tables above are some of the finds online that I’ve been cruising around for. Here’s hoping one finds it’s way into our living room soon.
