New White Coffee Table.







Just a quick reminder about my Dash and Albert giveaway.  Go HERE to check it out. 

Last weekend I found what I thought was the perfect coffee table for my friend Lorraine.  I have been giving her a hand with her house and she needed a coffee table.  I rushed her over to the shop (My Back Shed in Oakville) to show her my find.  She wasn't impressed.  We called her husband over.  He was even less impressed.  His response was "There really is nothing about it that I like.".......................So we left her there.

By Wednesday, I decided I needed to go and have another look.  I decided to buy it and store it for a future client or use it in our "Florida Home" (If that ever happens).  I did try her out in my own living room, and decided to keep it here.  My house has little natural light, so anything white works particularly well. I loaded on the books, plants, candles and Bits, and then called Lorraine around for coffee and her seal of approval.

My old, more contemporary table had a walk down the street and now is right at home in my Lorraine's family room.

  28. Could you tell me where you got the Union Jack pillow from? I'm looking for one just like it.

    You have a great eye. I burned the midnight oil last night looking through all your entries.

  29. Gailey, the pillow with the Union jack came from Helkat Designs on Etsy. Make in the UK.
