I bet I had you at the tile ;-) Do you remember my new (to me) vintage couch? Which I love more and more but still have not painted the trim, I will one day. Well it is much long than the couch than I had before. And as whenever you add new furniture, it does not always work with everything you have. My coffee table was just too small and looked silly.
But I am on a beer budget! A coors light, walmart kind of budget! So I was watching craiglist for a new table and checking out DIY's. I saw people who took dinning tables and cut them down. I realized my pretty pink table, which I use to use as a kitchen island before I got my French marble table would be perfect.
We just cut it down. I left the table on the high side, 23 1/2", because we work at lot at this table. I love it because I can put both sides up or down as needed. I have never had a large coffee table before but I find we use it so often I cannot imagine going back to small one. So do you have a table you can cut down?
