…new coffee table

I have been looking for a new coffee table casually for a few years. When I say “casually” it means I haven’t had a total bee in my bonnet like I usually do when I feel like I NEED something.

I was convinced to make the plunge after staying at a Four Seasons Hotel over spring break. They had a reclaimed wood coffee table and although I’ve seen them before for some reason this was the clencher for me. IMG_9081

I ordered the medium-sized one and sometimes I think I should have gone larger. I knew I wanted to have it to really use instead of just put things on to look pretty. My kids want a place to put their puzzles and games.

Yes, there is a child in this photo and yes, that is Wylie Coyote on the television.

There are a few things that I am learning about this type of natural reclaimed wood. It is not very forgiving when it comes to water spots and the like. I have done my research and I have a few choices. I could seal it with a matte poly or a beeswax, but the color will deepen and I’m not sure I want that. Or I could leave it as is and let the marks become part of the rustic look. I could always sand them out if I got sick of them.

The water marks do not look like your typical water rings. They integrate a bit more into the wood. So, I’m not sure yet what I will do. I may even just use my ASCP clear wax. I’ll be sure to let you know!

    Very nice and perfect for that room! I would just have a few coasters underneath & available for the kids/adults to use. It’s beautiful, I’d hate to see it marred with waterspots. Normal wear and tear shouldn’t hurt it too much – but drinks & food might. Lovely piece!

  7. Love it, Christen!

    Hi Christen! Can you share with me where I can find the gorgeous greenery sphere? I need a large one to fit into an olive bucket I found. I just can’t find one as large as this one appears to be.
    Thanks!
