New Coffee Table


Um yeah, I’m a little excited over here…sorry about the yelling.

Anyway, I’ve been working on my living room for the past year, which means I’ve been looking for a coffee table for the past year. Yeah, I’m picky. The criteria for my perfect table is as follows: white, no bottom shelf (so more of my pretty rug would be visible), large (about the same size as our current table), and reasonably priced. That’s not asking much, is it? Apparently so...

I’ve debated every option from sawing the bottom shelf off our current table and painting it white to building a new table from scratch to refinishing a table from Goodwill/Craigslist, but I’ve just never found the perfect solution.

As soon as I saw this Standard Furniture Cambria Coffee Table from Wayfair, I knew it was the one. The measurements were perfect, the price was right ($205) and I’ve had good luck in the past with Wayfair (I ordered my console table from them), so I ordered it right then. 

It arrived less than a week later and I couldn’t wait to put it together. As you can see, Ringo was obsessed with the box and kept dropping his ball in it. 

Everything was already assembled, so I just had to screw the legs on and add the piece of glass. It was so quick and easy…unlike some IKEA furniture.  

I love it! Although I wish it wasn’t so bright white…it’s way whiter than our entertainment center…maybe I just need to get used to it.

I will admit that I’m a little worried about the glass top and Ringo. He’s a walking tornado, but our glass end table has survived the past couple of years, so I’m hopeful the glass coffee table top will as well. We’ll see...

And with that, I can cross another item off my to-do list. It’s been awhile since I’ve reviewed my to-do list, so let’s see where I’m at now:

Find sectional
Buy rug
DIY abstract art
Re-paint console table
Paint China Hutch
Sew curtains
Apothecary cabinet
Find coffee table

Sew throw pillows
Buy garden stool/end table
Style entertainment center shelves
Replace missing baseboard
Replace arm chair
Buy large plant/pot
Decorate fireplace mantle


  1. I love it!! It's so pretty and definitely fits better in your living room then your old one.

  2. Striking!

    I just bought some new cloth napkins, and I'm thinking of sewing them for throw pillows.

    However, if I change out the pillows in our living room, so much else will have to change. I'm afraid to start that process! Brad is still working on the bedroom. It's taking forever. Now I'm itching to gel stain our bedroom set. How about, instead, you keep going on your house, and I'll live vicariously through you.

  3. I totally love it! I feel like I say that a lot when you post things all up in here. However, it is true. I don't really see in the pictures a terrible contrast in the whites of the table and the TV stand. Though of course, the quality of material on the IKEA stuff might be slightly less than the fancy table. One thing to keep in mind is with use and your puppies, it probably won't stay as white as it is now. I love how your living room is coming together! Keep it up!!
