I found a coffee table for our living room but I'm not sure if it suits the room.
I have been looking for a bigger bench, a chest or a coffee table for our living room. I didn't want anything too big as our living room is on the small side. I saw this solid wood oval table from a local guy's ad on kijiji. He refinished it and I thought $40 was an okay price.
This is the little white bench we were using. I love the idea of a rustic bench, but this one is a bit small.
I really like that the coffee table is fairly narrow so walking around it is not a problem. It is an overcast day, raining on and off, so I had to turn the overhead light on for photos.
Now I have to decide if I should keep it until I find the perfect (affordable) rustic chest or resell it. I like the shape but I'm not sure if the stain is too dark or if it is too short. Also, my style tends to be a bit more rustic. There are a lot of brown tones going on, but I could always add a white cut-work or vintage crocheted runner to the table to lighten things up. I also plan on replacing the little tray table to the right of the couch. The gallery wall is a work in progress too.
I need to think on it awhile but I would love to hear your opinion. From the same place I bought two old chippy paned window frames. After I clean them up I will take some photos. Okay, back to pie baking for tomorrow's Thanksgiving dinner.
I am sharing this at the following parties...
