The funniest part of it is that I litterally found it...in my basement...
I've had it for the last couple of years (at least...) and when we originally got it I had planned to turn it into a bench for our guest room like the one I made for our master)...but then we redid our bathroom and stole 20" from the guest room...which wouldn't leave enough room for a bench. At the time I didn't think the table would work as a coffee table because it didn't have storage / a shelf. However...since Owen has started motoring around, pawing at everything, and deciding his favourite toy is anything that is NOT a toy, I've realized (and thanks to your comments on this post) that I won't be able to store things out in the open much longer anyways.
So, the plan is to get some foam, some batting, and some fabric and upholster it ASAP. A few comments said not to have an upholstered coffee table if we like putting our feet up on it...we do, but I'm not too worried about the fabric - if it gets grimy (which I'm sure it will with Owen pawing it every day), we can just recover it in a year.
I went to Tonic Living today and picked out some fabric samples - here are some contenders:
Secret Gate - Pewter from Tonic Living
A New Twist - Caviar from Tonic Living
Centro - Mist from Tonic Living
Leda Peony - Midnight from Tonic Living
Any favourites? I know which one is leading the way for me...
