Our New Coffee Table

I've been wanting a new coffee table since we moved into our house, but it was one of those very low priorities on our list.  What we had wasn't bad, I just wanted something that was a little more our style.

I knew I wanted more of a farm house style look and I instantly fell in love with this table from Shanty 2 Chic.


Isn't it gorgeous!  It makes my heart swoon.  I showed it to Justin and he said it would be no problem to make our own version of it. 


He drew up his own plans...can you believe that he came up with this?  It's so beautiful!


He used a dark walnut stain on the top and Annie Sloan's Chalk Paint on the legs in
antique white.

 
He also made the top slightly different by framing the entire table on top instead of only the sides.
 

 
I love it!  And it really pulls everthing thing in the livingroom together.
