Coffee Table

I'm on the market for a new coffee table...or an old one that I can "do-up"

I quite like this one in the photograph, but it's a bit big for our small lounge room. At the moment we have a blanket box performing the task of coffee table in there, but I want something that has a drawer or shelf, so I can clear all of my stuff off the top.

I saw one on the footpath outside someones home the other day and it looked kinda perfect...but I was too late. It was gone by the time I drove back there.

Also, if I'd brought it home MONT would've killed me!

I'm aiming for lots of clean surfaces this year. Not sure how I'll go with that because my past performance on being clutter-free is not good...still I can only try I guess.


  1. The right piece will jump out for you! Let your imagination run wild. Some of the strangest things make the best coffee tables.

  2. Oh, bummer about the one by the side of the road. Keep looking, the perfect thingsis jsut around the corner...literally!

    I scored an oval one a couple of weeks back from a neighbour who was moving, and I don't think my husband was too impressed by it's apperance on the deck!

  3. Thanks girls. I'll keep my eyes peeled for any other treasures by the side of the road. I fear that I will be hung, drawn and quartered though if I drag anything else home. We'll see.

  4. Love that photo - hope you find what you're looking for x

  5. Amanda...I'll find the ideal piece eventually, but it's the thrill of the hunt I enjoy.

  6. This is such a stunning room , adore it. x

  7. What an amazing table!! Check out this one too for Coffee Tables.
