And the credit all goes to Tibbrix for finding it for me.

After:

It's hard to see in the picture but the top has inlaid metal scrolling.

OMG! Oakley, it is PERFECT!!!! Yowza!

Put up a pic of a closeup of the detail, if you can!

Congrats! Really, really great.

Oh, I just saw your credit to me. Unnecessary, but you're sweet for doing it.

And I so wish I had a princess castle on my hearth!

What a wonderful choice . . . I LOVE it! The dark color of the wood adds a richness to the room and the legs instead of a large , light boxy shape highlights your beautiful rug and sofa. Kudos to you both!

The color, style & size looks great in your room!

couldn't have found a better one, it suits your room so perfectly.

perfect!

It looks really nice!

I agree, perfect!!

I love it! Oak, you are on a roll with your LR facelift - new rug, new coffee table, new chair, and your red painted table! I like the direction you are going in.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

So much better! While I liked the other one, it seemed a little too cottagey for your room and the colors you have going on. The darker wood was a good choice.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Very nice!

Absolutely perfect! I was hoping for a glimpse of your rabbit painting on your mantle. Oak, your room is so lovely I could just curl up and stay there for hours!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Thank you! The room didn't end up to be the vision I had but I'm actually glad it didn't.

Lynn, the first thing my husband commented on was the legs. The legs are what makes the table, IMO.

Holly, did you see the little black and white checkered rabbit on the coffee table? I need to lay off the rabbits for now. lol

This is the first time I've ever bought a substantial piece of furniture online and it was such a good experience, I highly recommend it! I think I saved a lot of money, time and gas.

Tib, the castle stays on the corner of the rug so my DGD will have a soft spot to play, but I moved it to the hearth for the picture. She and I are into "Frozen" right now. We have a new Elsa doll. ;)

RE: New coffee table arrived!

It's so cute Oak. I love animal décor. Never too many rabbits! I just love your room. It has that "beautifully collected over the years" look that I love so much!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

It all looks great Oak! And, I really like how all your patterns and colors work so perfectly together.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

You know what they say about bunnies multiplying….

My neighbor's daughter came over to visit yesterday and told me the whole story of "Frozen".

Oakley, can you put up a pic of the detail of the table top? It's soooo pretty. I'd love to see it in context with your room, if possible.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

It looks perfect, oak, and your room is looking good. Love the rug.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

beautiful, great piece !!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Great choice, it looks wonderful and it's nice to see more of the rug, too.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Tib, this is the best I could do. If I went further back the scroll wouldn't show up, although it does in person. I got some rug in the picture.

You need to watch Frozen with your little friend! IMO, it's the best Disney movie as far as graphics goes that was ever made, or maybe because it's because I like Winter. :)

Excellent choice. Love the legs on that table.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

So great. Unique, yet classic. I think he scroll detail actually compliments your rug. If it had drawers, I'd consider getting it for myself. I need drawers, though. Thanks to you, I am loving having that bottom shelf gone for a whole host of reasons.

Once she gets the DVD, I'm sure we'll watch "Frozen" together.

Great scale for your room and sofa, and I like the scroll detail. Congrats!

RE: New coffee table arrived!

Tib, my last table had the perfect size drawer on the sofa side. Very deep. It held all my needs in there. That's where I sat and paid bills while watching TV.

Over the years I wore off the stain and it looked awful. I do have a little desk in the LR which I'm using now.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Oh I love it and it's perfect for your room!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

That is just right in your room. Thank you for posting the pictures!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

It was the perfect answer.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Lol - you clearly have good taste because when I saw the picture I was like 'Wow! I really like that table!' then I realized that it was the Before picture. Then I saw the next picture and I was like 'Wow! I really like that table too!'.


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Really lovely. That detailing perfect!


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

Cool top; is that leather?


 o
RE: New coffee table arrived!

mtn, it's embossed metal, black.
