New Coffee Table and Sneak Peaks of Family Room Redo

I mentioned we ordered a sectional and the color was all wrong for the room.  We get to use the sectional until our new one is delivered in March.  Gotta love great customer service.  Our old coffee table was rectangular and I could not find the perfect square coffee table to fit the sectional.  I did find an unfinished table that is shipped unassembled.  I knew it would work. 


Here is what the table looked like unfinished.  I used Annie Sloan Chalk Paint on the table in Chateau Grey with clear wax.



We added some coasters to the legs so I could move the table around easily and we made a pine board top for the table.  I wanted it to have a two toned look and be easy to clean because we use the heck out of our coffee table. 

My husband’s friend helped him join five pine boards together using a biscuit joining method and then we screwed it onto the table from the under side after I stained and used poly on the top. I used Miniwax jacobean stain for the first coat and the second coat was dark walnut. Then I used a water based poly from Benjamin Moore.




My storage baskets are huge and fit perfectly inside the table. 

I  am adding some coral through out the room.  I really like green, gold and coral all mixed together.  I have ordered a rug that I have photoshopped into the photo below and the new sectional colors are part of the pic as well.

It will be fun to see how much different the room will look with the new sectional.  I don’t know what I was thinking when I chose the current one.  It looked so much darker in the showroom. 

I STILL never got around to painting the oak trim in this room.  So much work, so little time.  However, here is what it looks like right now.  I wanted to show you the hints of coral throughout the room.






I got my inspiration for the coral color from my fireplace stones.


Thanks for stopping by.
