A new rustic farmhouse coffee table
The other day I told you about my search for farmhouse armchairs. Well, I am almost ready to make up my mind! The thing is, I thought that by getting rid of one sofa and by adding two armchairs instead, my decor dilemma would be solved. Unfortunately, it is not. Now I also need a new farmhouse coffee table!
The one we currently have is a white ottoman from Ikea, which matches the sofas. In a creative moment a few years back I decided this white “table” needed some new live and I stuck a patterned fabric around it. Yes, you read that correctly: stuck. I did not want to sew a custom fit cover, so I decided to fold and stick (with duct tape ;.) ) the fabric around the Ottoman. I thought back then that that was so clever! I would be able to take it off any time the cover needed washing…
I am not too fond of the black-and-white pattern any more and I really would like something made from wood. Believe it or not, I am even considering making a wooden cover for the ottoman from reclaimed wood. I have already started collecting some weathered boards. Am I that talented? Well, I might just be! I (with a bit of help from my dear husband) built a chicken coop last autumn, it survived its first winter and it is still standing :-. The challenge here is though, that I am not a plan-maker-think-before-I-do type of person. I just start and see where I end up. Not always very efficient! My husband is the “thinker”, but he is not here the next few days, and I need to do something now, before another 4 years pass by. You agree, right?
Coffee Table Inspiration
But first, I need some inspo! I know that Ana White has some pretty cool coffee table plans available for (seasoned – which I am not) DIY-ers. I will have to check if there is anything I can work with. Besides that, I will be hopping over to Pinterest and Instagram to see what others are having in their homes. Then I will check out Amazon (and probably Wayfair, Houzz and Pier One too) to see if it would actually be “more economical” to buy a new rustic coffee table then to actually really try and make one myself.
