~my new coffee table~

You can't beat an $8 coffee table. It cleaned up very nicely and no longer has cobwebs.

As Martha would say, "that's a good thing"


I am debating on whether or not to put a piece

of glass on the top, any thoughts on that?

A few cherry blossoms and some good books and I'm ready to relax for a bit!


Hope you all are having a great day!
xoxo

love the table! and love the price! i have a similar table in our kitchen and i did cover it with a piece of glass! love that it makes clean up alot easier however i wish i would of purchased a thinner piece of glass! i think with a coffee table you can go either way! but on a kitchen table where there are crumbs in abundance the glass is the way to go! cant wait to see what you do!

It looks lovely and patinated though it's hard to see the whole thing. Beautiful pics though.

Melaine, that coffee table of yours is goregous! Great find!

Betty Jo said...

Awesome table and price! ♥

Judy said...

I have glass on a sideboard but of course it doesn't get the "traffic" your coffee table will. I agree it will probably make your clean up easier but either way it will look great. I love your $8.00 find!

I think the table is perfect but a piece of glass would be fun because you could put vintage cards between the glass and table.

I like the look of the table without the glass but it easier to dust with the glass on it, love the table.

Your table looks fabulous with your oh so comfy sofa in the background...the cushions look amazing! I just want to jump through the screen and have a seat!! Making me want to head to IKEA right now!!
Love the chippy texture....glass would protect the table top as well as stop paint chips from getting on everything!! Your call...looks terrific either way!!

Katie said...

I love it, Melaine! Right here is why you are my idol! (as my husband calls you) haha! That looks amazing though, great find!

Between You and Me said...

great look!

Dreamy Whites said...

Melaine,
LOVE it. Love those flowers as well!!!! : )))))))))))))))
You are so talented. I don't know anyone else who can find such amazing stuff for such great prices! That would be 50.00 here! Serious! You should open shop down here, you would be rich!
I loved talking to you today! It made my day!
When I do meet you, the camera will come out!!!!
Keep in touch,
Maria
p.s. I am going to have to get a couple more books as well. I only have one of those!

Dreamy Whites said...

I needed to tell you 50.00, would be a good deal!
Take Care,
Maria
I can't wait to see where you put that bench you found recently!

Pretty. Yes to Glass.

Kacey said...

Love it! What a deal. Honestly, I think it's great without glass...

Sandi @the WhistleStop Cafe said...

It looks great. The glass would make it easier to wipe up... on the other hand, not wiping is ok.

I LOVE it!!

Melanie said...

I am loving that table!!! I am on the lookout for one myself...she doesn't have a sister, does she?:-)

Patty said...

Girl, you must get up pretty early for such great finds. I absolutely love it. Glass, well that depends if the glass will reflect a lot of light. Your room is so soft and comfy looking, anything really shiny might change the mood.

Lisa ~ A Cottage to Me said...

It's beautiful as is! But, you may want to protect it, so maybe glass would be good!

I love it! This table is just my style. Doesn't matter if you put your feet up. ;-)

Mélanie said...

I love your new coffee table ...And what a good deal

Kimberly said...

I'd say "no glass". It's beautiful in your room.

Christy said...

No glass! I love it with all the chippy paint exposed! Gorgeous!

I got a $4 coffee table at Goodwill that I still need to refinish. I wish mine had come complete with chippy white paint like yours!

paige said...

love your $8 table
$8? really? what a score!

i'd say go without the glass
but either way is great
:)

lkjatl said...

Love it! What a find!! I think glass is fine, or maybe just a pretty tray to set glasses down on.

Angie said...

Love it! I want to see more of it!!

Liz Bradley said...
