My living room has undergone a huge transformation in the last year. One of the final furniture pieces I have been looking for is a coffee table. My dream table is a lucite or glass waterfall table.
Well, guess what? Dreams do come true!
The wonderfully thoughtful Kerry Steele gave me a heads up that she had come across a glass waterfall coffee table when she found her awesome end tables. I believe my words were something like this: OMG!!! I WANT THAT!!! I’VE BEEN LOOKING FOR ONE FOR-EVER!!!! (I use the caps to demonstrate the insane urgency I felt at getting my hands on that table!) Kerry went out of her way for me, and made sure I got that table. Thank you Kerry!
The table is perfect. I love it. I love the thick glass. It helps to open up my room. It is so much better than the leather ottomans I had there (although my boys miss the ottomans because they were terrific pieces to bounce off of and onto the couch). The room has ceased to be used for their gymnastics – I’m working on reclaiming it! The room is coming together!
But you know how when you get something new, it makes you realize you need MORE new things? Yeah.
Now I’m feeling like I need a different rug, or at least to try the layered rug look. My couch is too similar in color to the rug. I think I’d like more pillows on the couch. And I still need to “figure out” that corner between the fireplace and couch. Not big enough for a chair. And I don’t want to line up another piece of furniture on that wall. Hmmm.
What I really need to do now is style my coffee table! I need fun, pretty things!
Here are some items that I’m loving:
There are so many other fun little pretty things out there — maybe I’ll dedicate an entire post one day to that.
In the meantime, here is something I aspire to:
But, for right now, until my little guy begins to listen to the word “no”, this is probably what my reality is!
