new coffee table

This may borderline on polygamy, but from this day forward my husband will have to share my affection with a new resident.

This is the first piece of furniture that I've had such affinity for. Well—the first furniture that I've actually owned. The coffee table was custom built by a craftsman using reclaimed barnwood, and in my opinion is shabby chic perfection. I like to sit and admire it. A lot.

The above image is the underside of the coffee table drawer (to hide those ugly remotes) that showcases a photograph of the barn where some of the repurposed wood came from. Even most of the nails/skrews are recycled. I found the craftsman through some friends that had custom furniture made. More images of his work can be found on the site Burning Barn Furniture. Isn't new furniture the best?!

Hope you are having an uplifting day today!

Love, love, love this piece! So original and beautiful!

beautiful! i love furniture but 1) we don't have room for any more in our town house and 2) hubby doesn't seem to love furniture like me and doesn't get that we need to keep buying things and saving them in our basement until we get a larger place/house! shabby chic = beautiful

@Amy Yeah the rug is new to me! My neighbor happened to have the perfect one stashed away and let me have it. Can't go wrong with gray shag!

if I had that table, that rug and those yarn balls I'd spend a lot of my time sitting and admiring it too! Lovely!
