The Coffee Table Conundrum

Now that we have our new couch, I’ve been on the look out for a new coffee table to complete our living room look. Our current coffee table is a very nice wooden table, but it doesn’t fit with our new couch. Its rectangle shape it makes getting around the couch a little snug and it is desperate need of  a good refinishing.

Before we bought our couch, I saw an idea for a pallet coffee table on Pinterest.

I really like the bright color and the bottom shelf. I also found a few more ideas for pallet coffee tables on Pinterest.

This one does not include a bottom shelf, but I like the white washed look.

BJ and I are debating the idea of building our own pallet coffee table. By building the table, we can control the shape and quality of the wood. I also like a few of these tables, which we could build ourselves.

I like the idea of painting the coffee table white to contrast our dark couch but I’m having a hard time deciding on which design I like the best. There are so many options. Currently, I’ve narrowed the search down to include two criteria. The table should be square and have a bottom shelf for coffee table book and magazine storage.

The search is on.
