I did manage to knock a chunk off one of the corners while it was in the boot of the car on the way home from the warehouse. The top is made from concrete but is obviously not as robust as I’d hoped.
And what a hunt it’s been! I thought finding a coffee table for the living area would be easy.. but when it comes to trying to find the right coffee table for a decent price it was harder that I thought. I initially had thought that I’d like to have a go at making a padded ottoman . Something like this.
I’d read a few DIY blogs and they made it look kind of easy.
I’d even gone as far as hunting through op shops, Gumtree and ebay looking for a second-hand coffee table. I was excited about making it and had even roped my ‘ever faithful mother’ into helping me.
But then last week when we were finally able to unwrap the sofa that was delivered back in march and unroll the pom-pom rug we brought last year, we realised that we just wouldn’t have the room for a large coffee table. So I abandoned the ottoman idea and started the hunt for a small coffee table.
In hindsight it’s probably better not to add another project to the ever-growing list. I’d purchased another old timber standard lamp a few weeks before that needs my attention first.
It will fit the space perfectly and was it on sale!!!! It has a concrete table top. Something different, I’ve always wanted a concrete bench top in the kitchen but they’re not cheap, so this is a great compromise
