I don’t mean fall themed, just something you made.

white coffee table post

I had a perfectly pretty coffee table for a long while. It was even the ultimate Lego table because of the outer ridge. But I knew early on that I wouldn’t have it forever. I was still experimenting with whites at the time, and while pretty and functional, I needed my quirky wood back.

So I gave the table to my sweet neighbour Torrie…

… so I could make way for my pallet wood handmade coffee table. YES! Can you see the real me in this room now?!

I fell in love with the size of the white one so the new one is similar. 36 x 48 to be exact.

The floor wool rug was a steal at a thrift for a whoppin’ $20! And it’s amazing, so very soft and warm on those cold bare feet.

Even the sofa got a mini makeover. I left it as is except piled a mix of coffee bean sacks overtop of existing pillows. No sew, baby… truly, it feels like a brand new room.

I felt the new table needed a new ‘something’, so my little checkerboard tray was born. Quirk meets quirk.

I LOVE the fact that the white table only cost me $20 and some paint. This enabled me to change my mind at any time I desired without feeling guilt.

  1. Thanks so much for hosting these great link-ups! My favorite project this fall was getting several girlfriends together for an afternoon of soup and spiked apple cider while making these awesome painted wood bangles (Shown in #9 of the themed link-up!). They are such an easy and fun craft that really let’s each person’s individual personality shine.

  2. I love your coffee table soooo much better for your home!! And what a difference on the couch with just changing up the look of the pillows…makes me want to revamp mine!! LOVE the fun things you do. And thanks for your great link party!!

  3. Thanks Donna, I’m crushing over your coffee table. I love all the extras you added to it! I linked up my Thanksgiving Tree craft this week too. Have a great weekend.

  4. Love your table Donna!
    My favorite project that I linked up for Oct was a bar stool that I was able to just get creative with and make it a functional piece of art. I love when we can take a piece of furniture, have no idea what we’ll do but in the end, love the results. That’s how my Industrial look stool came to be.
    Thanks for hosting a great party!!

  5. Hi Donna…love your new coffee table and covered pillows!! I linked up my “new” wine crate ottoman. I used a burlap tree bag for to cover a pillow for mine too! “No sew” is the only way for me :) Thanks for hosting! Have a great weekend, Laurel

  6. Hi Donna, I’ve been a follower for years, but somehow I’ve never made it over here for a party. Today I’m happy to be linkiing up my pumpkin centerpiece. Thanks for making all this sharing possible.

  7. Thanks for hosting, Donna. I am sharing my galvanized container collection (#106 in the Home Decor section) and my favourite project this Fall is a pillow and bunting I made using leftover plaid flannels from a throw and table runner I made a few years ago.

    Love the new coffee table. It is so you, especially with the awesome rusty gears on the side. Very cool.

  8. Donna, the new coffee table is definitely YOU! I kept a huge, square coffee table that didn’t really suit the room for way to long, as it was also, the perfect LEGO table. It was very well loved though. lol

    Have a wonderful weekend and thanks for the party (:

  9. Oops! I linked my favorite October project but forgot to comment! ;) My favorite is my entryway closet redo. Can you believe I had procrastinated for 11 years? I finally admitted to myself that it sorely needed an update. If you look and read, you’ll know exactly what I mean!
    Thanks for hosting the link party and for all the inspiration you share.
    All the best!
