As you could see from the previous post, we are back to house projects. Our last weekend (soon you will read about it over here) was full of surprises, but we also took care of a project we have been planning for a while.
After we mentioned (in this post) about our need of changing the coffee table (the white one was all scratched and ruined, even if it is hard to tell from the pictures) we let the months pass without really do anything about it. But finally last weekend we got things running and after few days of work, here it is the result:
this board I made, we were really fascinated by the rustic look. However, the prize tag of rustic coffee tables we actually loved was much less fascinating. We are the kind of persons that think it is ok to spend some money on a nice piece of furniture, but since we were looking for something really basic we decided to give it a try and build the coffee table ourselves (soon you will find the full story here).
In the first two pictures here the color reads more red-ish that it is. The real color is deeper and less vibrant. The next two shots maybe give a better idea of the actual color.
I really love the texture and the grain of the wood. It brings warmth to the room.
So, what do you think?
