|Johnna and I put our heads together and came up with this new modern looking cocktail table without spending a dime!|
|After we came up with the design I found this table on a modern furniture site for $450.|
So similar, although I like the two toned, the mix of light and dark woods, on ours better... and so expensive!
|Once I got the table in the house I realized that it was too low. I was well aware that is was going to be but with my existing sofas I needed to add some height. Johnna and I thought about adding legs somehow but that would take away from the look. So I thought maybe putting a long and narrow cocktail to the side sitting perpendicular to create a 2 tier cocktail would work. Johnna grabbed 2 tables from Doak's room and thought we could saw half of the legs off and do the 2 tier idea with those tables. (See Below)|
Doak's Lack Tables from IKEA
Now he's down to two but it looks fine until I get back to IKEA to replace it.
BEFORE & AFTERS
|I love it!|
|Ben is pretty convinced that I set this up for him...|
|and Bella loves it too, especially since Doak can't get to her anymore! Haha.|
Have a good one!
