Shopping for a Coffee Table

Hey guys! I hope y’all have recovered from your food comas and paid off your credit cards from Black Friday because we’re not done shopping. Not quite yet anyway. I need a new coffee table, and I need your input. Well, to be honest I’ve needed a new coffee table for quite some time (since we moved into the house, I knew the existing one wasn’t quite right), but Thanksgiving evening it all came to a head when this little gem was finally unrolled and loved on. Ya, have to admit, I kinda caressed it’s awesomeness for a few minutes an hour or two or three or four (let’s be real). I’ve been lusting over it for years. Ever since my girl Emily Henderson rolled it out for the first time, I kinda went bonkers over it.

Now, don’t get me wrong, I loved (past tense) my present coffee table in our old place, but it just doesn’t fit in the space in this new house. It’s a 48″ x 48″ monstrosity that has overtaken the TV room. It’s enormous! The Boy and I can roll out a full sushi meal on it and have room to spare. It’s crazy huge (and for sale BTDubs). I loved it at the time because of it’s size, and it’s from Room and Board so you really can’t go wrong. However, in this new space, it must go.

West Elm Wants

West Elm is one of my favorite home furnishing stores, and they have been killing it lately. They have such a clean, modern look that really fits my decor of mixing old and new with a twist of Mid Century Modern.

For today’s post, I decided to pull together a few of my absolute favorites. Managing to restrain myself and keep it to a Top 10 list. Soooo difficult! Seriously you guys, I swear I could buy every single item in this store. But alas, I cannot. The Boy might string me up by my toes and have me publicly shamed if I did so.

However, if you are looking for something sweet for mom, dad, sister, brother, BFF, or just for yourself (which OMG, there’s only 7 more Fridays until Christmas…yikes! Get on that already!) I thought this little list might help ya out. Give you some gift giving ideas. So let’s get on with it, shall we? BTW, ALL images below are from West Elm.

10 under $100 – bargain buys

the boy always tells me i have champagne taste and yes, i will agree…it’s been that way since i was a kid. my mom would always tell me, “no one is going to know if you have $20 jeans or $200 jeans unless someone looks at the tag on your behind.” i beg to differ. while watching hgtv the other day, the host said, “with a little DIY, you’d never know this table was only $20.” ummm, yes. yes, i would…and the boy’s response to that was, “well that’s because you’re a snarky bitch momma.” bahahahahaha…this is also true (and he says that with love). but just because i have champagne taste, doesn’t mean i don’t have a budget.

so let’s do a little budget friendly shopping, shall we?
