This site just keeps becoming more and more useful. I saw this forum page and am need of some practical inspiration. My wonderful boyfriend built me this table, knowing I was too picky to have one of those cheap coffee tables that only last a year and aren’t at all worthwhile for $100 or sometimes $200 or more! He built it and I stained it antique white. I think I might like this coffee table more than I like him lol! It’s really wonderful, but that creates a harder challenge for me — now whatever sits on it has to be perfect. It’s long, about 5ish feet by 3ish feet, so it’s really going to need something substantial on it. I did order one photography book on dogs (it was adorable!) but now I’m thinking I’ll need a tad bit more.
