I hope the Easter Bunny was good to all of you! He hopped over here and left some goodies for Wren, and we had a wonderfully warm day which was perfect~
Today we are back to the grind with more work in the laundry room, and getting through some client items in the paint shop. But I am thinking of squeezing in one of my own projects, this coffee table. I finished it last Fall for the family room, but I think the size may just be perfection for the living room. I have several pedestal kitchen tables we will be cutting down to coffee table height today so I will hopefully have one left over for the family room as well. But this table is just so much bigger than any table I have seen or worked with before, and I need huge for the living room!

I picked up a perfectly "Martha" shade of warm-grey mistinted paint last week and think that the table would take on a whole new feel with a make-over. Of course, it may or may not happen todady depending on whether we get through everything else!

And if you haven't already popped by, check out my "day job" over at Domestic Ease. Every Monday we chat about decorating and design In The Nest~

Hi Holly!
Glad to hear you had a nice Easter. I'm sure Wren is enjoying all the goodies...and if it's anything like my place, mom and dad are enjoying them too!!

Can't wait for pics of the coffee table...

I love the domestic ease section you do! Quick question: In the city slacker section, there's a picture of a white round dining table, with red modern chairs. Do you know where those table and chairs are from? I ABSOLUTELY love the mix of casual with a bit of modern!

Thanks so much Chous! Here is the table:

and here are some pretty similar chairs (and they are probably a fraction of the cost!):
