Continuing the series on updating my home, Spurgeon-Lewis Antiques, located in Alexandria, VA is the next culprit on the list... As I was perusing 1st Dibs, which has clearly proven to be a dangerous activity for me, I came across this incredibly charming table...


I thought it would be a nice replacement for the glass top coffee table in my family room! (Shown here with the old rug..)

Replacing the table would also enable me to use the accessories on the glass top table elsewhere, as I wouldn't dream of covering up the gorgeous top of the new table! I loved the size, the colors, and the crusty quality, and shipping didn't look to be an issue.. (Shipping prices can often result in turning a potential purchase sour!)


As you can see, sometimes things show up and don't go where you think they are going to go. This table, although I thought it would go best in my family room, actually looks best in my master bedroom, and is a welcome addition! This room is a bit dark and cave-like, and the table lightened up the space and is better appreciated in this room... 

In my family room, the table was too busy... especially with the new orange rug. Rather than hauling the glass top coffee table back from storage, I tried the chair ottomans in front of the couch. This move couldn't have made my family members happier! SO much more cozy and comfortable in here now! 


And the table is just perfect here...

The table looks like a Harrison Howard painting, very charming. The family room looks great with the plain ottomans, they balance the patterns and colors in the room. Love the styling...pillows, plates, colors...lovely!
