A few weeks ago, I posted “Do YOU Have a Designer’s Eye?” describing how my interior designer niece spotted a special little table, in a dark photo of a bunch of tables, in a garage. She was very excited when I told her I had indeed acquired said cute table and would be happy to give it to her.
From the moment I picked up this table,
all I could think of were the house
the Jetson’s lived in. LOL
Sheilagh, my niece, loves Mid Century Modern for it’s clean lines and simplicity and also because many MCM pieces were well constructed from real wood. This table is no exception.
Sheilagh and her husband have only been married a couple of years and they also purchased a lovely but small home. In other words, they do not have room for big pieces of furniture AND they are on a tight budget. The latter must be extra difficult when you are a designer with designer tastes!
I took a peak at her Pinterest “Living Room” board and quickly realized why she spotted the table. Here are a few of the tables she had pinned as her “perfect” coffee table.
I became perfectly clear, why she spotted this little table in the dark photo! But unlike the tables above, our little table is ORIGINAL, Canadian made by a highly regarded manufacturer and it is much much CHEAPER!
Given her decor and her plans for a new sectional sofa, she knew EXACTLY how she wanted the table finished.
What do you think? Personally, I LOVE IT!
She and I both have a love for walnut finish so there was no argument there. It could have been all walnut but the white really modernizes and brightens the look.
I am so happy to help someone so artistic… it’s quite flattering! The best compliment came from her husband. Sheilagh showed him an “after” picture and he thought it was another of her designer table “pins”!
This table is truly Nicer Than New!
