I cannot believe that I am about to show you my hand-me down 20 year old coffee table, but I am. When my husband and I moved to California from Washington 5 years ago, we were lucky to have enough hand-me downs from my family to furnish our apartment. Now that we are living in our first purchased home little by little we have been replacing the hand-me downs with pieces that do not look so missed matched.
While walking around at IKEA last night we found a decent size coffee table but as soon as we came home it downed on us that we are the parents of a very active toddler. The coffee table has sharp corners and spells trouble.
This is the table from IKEA:
And this is the current table that we have. Doesn’t this scream the 80s?
The dilemma that I have is do I buy the IKEA coffee table (which is at a price that will not brake my budget) or do I keep the glass of the existing table and build a frame for it?
