A New Coffee Table…

Do you remember the post a while back where
I showed you our living room & all
the changes that I wanted to make to it…

 haha lots of changes! & guess what?? There are
already so many changes that have been made!
But today I am only showing you the new coffee
table that we just added yesterday…

I love this coffee table for many reasons…

-Lots of storage
-The shape & detail in the wood
-Dark finish
-The top lifts up for easy laptop use exd…
-It’s bulky size really centers the room
-Great quality, it will hold up for a long time :)

My passion in life is painting furniture, but this piece
will not be painted… {For now haha}.
The one thing I may change is the hardware on
this piece, which will change the whole look
of the coffee table.

This particular piece is from Ashley Furniture for
those of you who were wondering,
but my experience with them was not too pleasant…
But we did get an amazing deal {practically free}
So I guess you have to weigh your pros & cons.

This has been a long makeover process, &
It’s no where near being “finished”,
but I’m okay with that because I am a busy lady
& I am just taking it one step at a time :)

 What do you guys think about our new addition to our living room?
Do you see one big problem? Because I do.
I need to pick out a rug for the living room..
I am just so indecisive!!
Do you have a favorite place to buy rugs, where are all the good
deals? I would love to hear your suggestions!
Share your thoughts with me in the comments below or
on the facebook page, or tweet me!

Talk to you soon,
Liz Marie


  1. Love it!!! Understand why you fell in love with it…….

  2. Totally gorgeous table! I love it!!

  3. Melissa says:

    Did you sell your coffee table?(:

  4. I just ordered a rug from my living room from Rugsusa.com, they just had a 50% off code which is pretty awesome when you need a huge rug! I haven’t received my rug yet so I can’t report on it but i’m excited! I would sign up for their emails because this is the 2nd 50% off code i’ve seen in the last few months.

  5. Oh my gosh, our coffee table is almost EXACTLY like yours!!! I love it! Can’t wait to see the rest of the changes you’ll be making! (though I love the room the way it is!)

  6. Oh my goodness I love the table. I would love a table with drawers. I’m sorry your experience shopping at Ashley wasn’t very pleasant. But it looks like you scored! with this table. xo

  7. Love your new coffee table! Oh my gosh – you mentioned you had an unpleasant experience with Ashley Furniture….I had an unpleasant experience buying leather club chairs from Pottery Barn, so sounds like we had similar bad customer service experiences! Our chairs had to be reordered, because the first time they arrived they had deep scratches in them :( and it took FOREVER (months) to ship them to Virginia (they are made at High Point NC…go figure!!) They ship them form High Point to a central warehouse then to the customer…Geez! No wonder PB’s prices are high!! But we snagged a great deal on them and I love them so I guess all’s well that ends well! I really love your wall color too :)

    • Thank you so much!!! Yes, My experience was very similar.. promised them within 3 weeks… 8 weeks later I was still waiting & given the run around. It came in while we were on vacation.. & when we finally got it home.. it had a dent in the corner & we were told if we want anything done we have to bring it to the store {which it’s very heavy and would be a lot of work}. I don’t know.. I was expecting a lot more from the company! I’m glad you loved your chairs, I’m sure the new ones are beautiful!

  8. Garden Ridge has a lot of rugs and good prices. Sometimes its hit or miss but I love that store for so many things!

  9. Love the table!! Actually I love your whole house ;) one of my favorite places for rugs is overstock.com and shipping is only $2.95!!! Can’t beat that and they have super cute rugs for pretty cheap!

  10. That end end coffee table is gorgeous! I really love the wood color:) Just wanted to let you know that I tagged in one of my posts and you should check it out!!!! http://thebloomingdaisy.blogspot.com/2012/03/your-it.html

  11. Your table is awesome. It is a great addition to the room. Looking forward to all your future changes. Will you be making your slip covers? I would like to make some for my couch.

    • Thank you so much! I have not decided yet if I am making them or not… Tough decisions & at times I doubt myself that I can actually do it.. I will keep you updated! & thank you so much again :)

  12. I definitely second the Rugsusa.com comment. I recently purchased a 5×8 black and white chevron rug from them for only $55! And it is actually really great quality. Far better then my Urban Outfitters rug purchase that I made a few months before. Great new addition…can’t wait to follow the rest of the redo.

    • Thank you so much for the review! That is very helpful.. I guess you always think that the most expensive thing is the better quality… but that is not always the case! Thank you again! :)

  13. Wow! Love it!! I would love for you to stop by and link to my Sew Crafty Saturday Party!

  14. Can’t wait to see how the change in hardware looks…I like it now. I have an older table that is very similar, but I think I will have to paint it since it has lots of scratches. Thanks for sharing, Lori

    • Thanks! I can’t wait to pick some hardware out! & I’m sure this baby will have to be painted someday.. I mean you can’t avoid scratches on a coffee table with all the things you use it for… Thanks for leaving a comment :)

  15. Love the addition to your space. I have a question…I googled painted chairs and the first several hits had pics with names below…like yours for this post. What did you do to your pic to get it to show up like that? Is is some sort of “tag”? Anyway I wold love to know how to do this. Thanks for any help you can offer. Lori

  16. Why not help a local enterprise by making use of a nearby moving company.
