Our New Coffee Table & a DIY

We've been searching for the perfect coffee table for our living room for about a month now.  I had no idea it would be so challenging to find one that fit our criteria.  With a toddler in the house, rounded corners were a must!  However, that significantly narrowed down our options.  We also needed it to be budget friendly, which eliminated quite a few more.  Our sectional is a square shape, so that meant the size needed to be sort of specific.  My husband and I both fell in love with one from West Elm when we first started looking, but we wanted to look around before pulling the trigger.  Of course when we went back to get it, it had been discontinued!  We were pretty bummed, but continued the 
?[search.  This past weekend, on Valentine's day, we checked out a local furniture store on a whim.  How romantic right? :)  And we found the perfect one!  The color of the wood blends perfectly with our roman shades and the size is perfect too.  




I found this faceted box in the One Spot at Target.  I couldn't pass it up for $3.  I'm always drawn to boxes for some reason and they are great for styling.


I fancied it up a bit, by gluing this little rock to the top.  This rock may not look like anything special, but it has a little sentimental value.  When we first moved in our home, my husband found it in the backyard and he loved it because you could see the layers in it.  So I held on to it as a memento of when we first moved in.  I like the juxtaposition of the more modern box with the earthiness of the rock.  A crystal on top would be pretty too!





Slowly but surely this room is coming together!  Our rug should be arriving today and I can't wait to get it down.  I think it will really help pull everything together!

I love the coffee table! The addition of the rock to the target box makes it look high end. I may need to scoop one up if they aren't all gone.

Thanks friend! "Slight rustic nod" is a great way to put it! I love a touch of rustic without the whole room feeling that way!

Thanks so much Beth! We found it at that big furniture store across from IKEA. I have never been in there before, but they have decent prices and some cute stuff. Most of it is your typical big box furniture store stuff, but I found a few things I really liked.
