Rustic Farmhouse Coffee Table

A while back I shared this picture and captioned it, "The beginning of something beautiful."

It was actually the beginning of TWO something beautifuls.  One of those things is a custom, rustic, farmhouse coffee table.  My client wanted a large, rustic coffee table and we decided to use this piece to add a pop of color.

A quick tip:  I love bright colors but there can be too much of a good thing.  Coffee tables, end tables or small console tables are great pieces to get a small dose of color.

This coffee table is big!  It is 60" long which is the normal length of a 6 person dining room table. :)

To give the coffee table a rustic feel, the base is distressed slightly and the top is made from 2 x 6's to achieve that farmhouse look.

If you missed the hutch to wine bar makeover, read about it here.

The colors of the wine bar and coffee table were based on a pretty Robert Allen floral.  The fabric has a soft white background with slate, turquoise and yellow flowers.  I suggested we find a fabric first then use the colors from it. Once we chose the fabric, the client ordered pillow cases in that fabric and a coordinating fabric from Etsy.  Then the fabric was used in another project.  Some of you may recognize it.

If you follow me on Instagram or Facebook, you have seen this fabric before.  Remember this picture?

It is something I have never done before and I am excited to share this project with you.  Be sure to check back tomorrow to see this piece and the 3 other custom pieces it goes with!  

This is something I have never done before and was super excited to do.  I love the final result and so does the client.  The entire 4 piece project will be posted tomorrow.
