In our last house, we used an ottoman where a coffee table would have been and an eight foot kitchen island instead of a proper dining table. So when the prospect of moving came up, I got a little giddy thinking about styling tables. Maybe that’s weird. I don’t know. But every time I would go to a friends house and their table had just the right feel, I was a tiny bit jealous.
We needed an odd sized table for our space so Kyle built our coffee table using Thimble & Cloth’s DIY with few of our own personal touches. We used 14″ hairpin legs and distressed the wood to help it fit in with our modern farmhouse angle. Then it was my turn to decorate it.
With a two year old running around, you can’t go too crazy but I think we got the job done. I found the basket at a local antique shop and threw the rest together with a few things I had around the house plus one or two new items.
Now the fun part! I want to see your coffee table action. Follow the #showmeyourtable on Instagram and add your photos in. I’ll be posting my table styling and want to see what you have going on as well.
So, c’mon …#showmeyourtable.
