Our New (to us) Coffee Table

The coffee table we used to have always felt a little small to me and like it needed to be a little larger to fit the space better.  All the ones that I liked were pricey so I just kept waiting for one to pop up somewhere.  So when I saw this one on a Facebook yardsale sight I jumped on it!  It's the perfect fit and fills the room so much better.

The best part is, it was $100 and it already has a rustic look so I don't have to worry about it with my littles.  It takes a beating every day with matchbox cars and I think it just adds to the character.  

The "tray" is a thrifted mirror from Goodwill.  I have no wall space for it, but I'm kind of liking it here.  It reminds me of one of those hand mirrors, but on a much larger scale.  

The original knob was wood and was the same finish as the table.  It made it look a little dated so I switched it out with this concrete looking knob from Hobby Lobby.  It was only a few dollars and made a huge difference.  And that little drawer turned out to be the perfect spot to store matchbox cars.  I'm all about functional storage. 

I also want to give a shoutout to my new favorite plant, the asparagus fern.  I picked it up on a whim at Lowe's for our back patio but I'm kind of loving it in here.  It's super low maintenance and adds so much life to the room.  I planted it in a plastic bowl (with holes drilled in the bottom) and then put it in this champagne cooler from IKEA.  I bought it when they were on sale for $10 and wish I had grabbed a few more.  They make the perfect planter!  

And in full discloser, this coffee table is usually not styled like this.  With little toddler hands around it's just easier to keep it cleared off for now, but I do have fun styling it from time to time.
