Let me introduce you to the new arrival in our home: a coffee table.
I’m so excited about it!
I designed the table and our friend Phil – who does furniture restoration – made it for us.
We chose the wood about a month ago. P and I wanted something with an interesting texture – knots, burr…wood with personality – so we went to Cox’s Yard (an architectural salvage yard in Moreton in Marsh) in search of some reclaimed wood.
We couldn’t find any to our liking, however we found some off-cuts of oak floor boards that had been discarded because of their imperfections: exactly what we were looking for!
It took some time to decide which boards would fit the design, since they were in different sizes and width, but I’m extremely pleased with the result.
Isn’t it beautiful?
Now that we have a coffee table, my next hunt is for a rug in white or cream.
If this were my house, I would replace the carpet (my least favourite flooring option!) with white floor boards and choose a colourful rug, but since I’m renting….I’ll go for a white rug
So what do you think of my new coffee table?
