The New Coffee Table

For my birthday I asked my Dad to help me build something.  I figured a coffee table would be a doable task, but in reality I can't take credit for this table.  My Dad still did most of it.  I still have a lot to learn, turns out :)  So here's how the table ended up.

I had seen a few industrial-looking tables online that I loved, but I wanted something a little different.  I loved the look of the wheels on some of the coffee tables I'd seen, so we found these wheels at the Depot.  They were actually the priciest part of the table.  

I found some wooden bins that fit in the table perfectly, so I painted them yellow and distressed them a bit.

They kind of bring in more of the mustard yellow in the room. 

 I stained the table with some watered down gray paint and then I put 3-4 coats of Poly Acrylic on it to seal it.  To finish off the room, I found this rug on Zulily.

I don't have great finished pictures of the room because we're still cleaning up from Christmas, but I also brought in this lamp from Target that sits between two of these brown chairs.

And that's the updated space.  Thanks for dropping in.
