Good Old Coffee Table

Oh, beat up old coffee table we love you so. You have sustained lots of abuse in the last four years and you're still going strong. With every new nick and scratch you are more beautiful to me. I hope my husband thinks the same thing about me when I'm old.


We bought it at a little antique shop in Union Pier Michigan. The place I dream of owning a little summer cottage one day.

Not one screw or nail to hold this baby together.


Here is the first flower cutting of the year, ya hoo! This is all that popped up so I brought them in and put them on a clock that I found without any hands.


I used it like a candle holder during the fall and winter but I'm loving the springy dafadils there today.

 

Nothing like a beat up old coffee table...

  5. Love it...and that clock is amazing! I'm putting a note to self to plant daffodil bulbs next Fall. I planted tulips, and am so excited to see 36 of them clustered in the back. Love Spring flowers!

  6. Loving the yellow flowers! Fresh flowers add so much to a room. I wish I could have them all the time!

    Our coffee table is not old, but my 13-month old thinks it's his own drum set so I don't know how long it will last. Maybe it will end up with that old, antique look after all. Ha!

  8. Now I want to see more pics of the room. It looks great! The coffee table reminds me of a set that we bought and had to return. Too wobbly for my future wrestler. Love the splash of yellow from the flowers.

  32. Lovely Little Nest,
    I bought the rug at Pottery Barn for a steal of a deal. I brought it home just to try it out because it was not what I had in mind. I ended up really liking it!

  33. I LOVE your coffee table! It totally looks like something you would pay 1,700 at Restoration Hardware. But the most wonderful thing about it is that it has history...I LOVE that!

  36. I love it all- the table, rug, flowers, pillows, great chair, did I see a dresser in the background? So beautiful, you have such terrific style. Your coffee table reminds me of our breakfast table (benchwright by Pottery Barn). I'm going to try to link up too- need to take a few pics tomorrow! Our coffee table is an ottoman in preparation for a soon-to-be cruising baby:)
