New Living Room Coffee Table

This past summer we updated the floors throughout the first floor of our house.  We went from orange-toned laminate to dark brown, engineered hardwood floors.  The new floors are beautiful and add so much warmth to our house.

But as the saying goes--one change leads to another and the style of the old coffee table no longer worked in the room.  I've had my eye on a more traditional table and finally decided to add it to my cart.

The wood top complements the floors and I love the two additional drawers for storage.  (Link to purchase the coffee table.)

Here's a look at the old table.  (I moved it downstairs to our family room and plan on spraying the base black.)

When it came to styling the table, I added a vase filled with greenery from my yard as the focal point.  Fresh greenery adds life and I love the organic feel.

A candle and a few decorative items finish the look.

I also gave the side table a makeover with black chalkboard spray paint.  I love that chalkboard paint doesn't require the extra steps of sanding or primer.

Here's a glimpse at the side table before painting it black and view of how the room looked 4 years ago.

I tried decorating with more color, then quickly realized neutral tones are my jam!

  1. The table is lovely and the room looks beautiful. The black really works on the side table too. I guess everyone is in the process of revamping!
