The perfect table

Hello friends!
Hope everyone's Mother's Day was as beautiful as mine.

Last year when we built our gorgeous sun room I filled it with items I love!

But there was something missing.

A coffee table!  I thought we could use this pouffe that I found at Homesence.

But.... it was hard to put a drink on it in fear of it spilling.

So we were on the look out for a table that would compliment our furniture.

So I started looking at garden furniture. OMG! the $$$ signs. This was last year.

Coffee tables were too big and bulky as well as $$$ so we made do.

Now it's sun room season again and we are on the lookout for a table.

Without looking Mr WWH came home with the perfect table. My hubby went dumpster diving....

No not quite, picked this gem up on the side of the road.

Measuring 19 1/2 inches by 40 inches.  It had a shelf on the bottom that we already removed.

Perfect condition! But needed some updating. So Mr WWH went to work.

Took it apart and cut down the legs to 15 inches and then with the palm sander gave it a
good sanding.

Put it back together again and now it's ready for painting.

After a few coats of Beauti Tone Raven it's ready for it's debut.

                                                       Ta Da!

                                              Perfect size, Perfect colour!

                                        So when you least expect it..........

            The best part was that it was FREEEEEEEEEEE!!

                                            Love It!

                Thanks to my sweetie for my new coffee table!

                                              Thanks for following along!

  6. That is wonderful Linda! Your hubby found quite the roadside treasure and has the capability to rebuild it as well. It looks great and the price was right! Enjoy that beautiful room.

  7. That is the perfect size! What a lucky find! It fits better than the pouf and looks like it is a match to the other furniture. Perfect! Thanks for linking it up to Dishing It! & Digging It!

  8. What a fabulous find.. Your room looks so lovely and inviting Linda. Love seeing your sweet fur baby.

  9. That looks so good! I like the color you painted it. I happen to like ottomans for coffee tables, but my husband prefers the traditional wooden coffee tables. So mine stays put. I do think they are the most practical though. Glad that you were able to solve your problem without much money.

  10. What a sweet Hubby to solve the table problem! And he had a good eye too! Great job....

  11. Linda that table was the perfect solution to your needs....turned out beautiful!!!

  12. Well done to your hubby! The table is perfect for the space.
