DIY coffee table and living room refresh - Update!

We have a new coffee table! I mentioned here that we were going to DIY a coffee table. And we did it this weekend...
 

From my previous post, a lot of you liked the Peony fabric option - and I did too, but it would be much better in a room with lighter furniture. Since our floors are dark and our furniture is dark AND visually heavy, we really needed something to brighten the space.

This Centro Mist fabric from Tonic Living was the perfect solution. It's also an outdoor fabric so is a bit more stain resistant and durable for putting our feet up on the table (which we do all the time...)


We changed the pillows (thanks mom for sewing!) to give the whole room a bit of a refresh. The gray fabric is Cameron in Storm, and the toile is Neo Toile in Coral (I am in looovvveee with this fabric).

 What do you think?

Good call going with the lighter fabric! I didn't consider your current furniture and flooring colours when I made my vote for the darker fabric. And using outdoor fabric was another good call! I have an upholstered storage ottoman (that I love), but I want to reupholster it to a patterned fabric - i should definitely check out some outdoor fabrics for the extra durability. Upholstered coffee tables are so much more kid-friendly! No sharp corners :P
