There are just a few things left on our family room to-do list before we can do a final reveal with before and after photos. One of those things, that we reported on a couple weeks ago, was replacing this hand-me-down coffee table that was the most uncomfortable thing to prop your feet up on. It was downright painful. Because it was already higher than our couch, putting a cushion on top and upholstering it was out of the question. Not to mention, we wanted something leather and wipeable.
We rounded up our top contenders in that same post and over the past couple weeks we have mulled over the choices and weighed out the pros and cons, and some of you weighed in too--thanks for that!
After nixing for price (we weren't wanting to spend anywhere close to a grand), and color (the room is going to have enough white/cream once the map is moved--that's happening), we decided on dark, modern, visually open number one. If you follow us on Facebook, you know we ordered it on Tuesday and to our surprise, it arrived yesterday! Three cheers for fast delivery.
The 60"Andalucia Large Dark Brown Leather Bench was on sale on Overstock for $187 (score!) and it was just what we were looking for. We love the mix of materials--the steel legs, walnut base and dark chocolate leather looks. go-ood. And it feels good on our feet, too. Uh, all of our feet...
Hahaha! Oh, how I love that last picture. Yes, even Greta warmed up quickly to our newest piece of furniture.
As tempting as it is, we are going to try not to spend our whole weekend with our feet up. But there may be some lounging in the midst of yard work, zoo-going and dinner with friends. What are you up to?
