Coffee Table Dilemma…sell or keep?

Happy Thursday!! I cannot tell you how much I am loving summer! It’s my most favorite time of the year! I love having an open schedule, lazy days, play days, and adventure days. It’s all so much fun! For those of you that don’t know, I have four boys (13, 10, 7, 4). You can probably imagine how all the energy and craziness that goes on here can lead to huge arguments, and sometimes even a full blown fist fight. Four little men, all trying to be the alpha! That is the one part of summer break is hard. Fortunately, thus far, summer break has been so good to us!!

Anyway, on to what I want to show y’all today, a coffee table….

My husband found this coffee table, the other day, on the Facebook marketplace. He went and picked it up after work, and brought it home for me to fix up. He’s an amazing husband!!

It’s a long coffee table, just a little over 60 inches long. I love the length!

I gave it a couple coats of white chalk paint, slightly distressed it, and sealed it.

I brought it into my house to stage, but then started to wonder if maybe I should keep it?

What do you think? Does it fit the space? Does it look like my style?

I’m still trying to decide what to do with it…sell it? Keep it? I’d love to hear what you think I should do.

Happy Thursday, my friends!!! Hope your day is wonderful!!!

  1. Oh Emily I say keep this without a doubt. It has beautiful curves and looks great in your space. This time I wouldn’t sell.

    Terrific job as always


    1. Thank you so much!!!

  2. Omg! I would be hanging onto that for a while! I think it fits in perfectly with your style. I wish I was crafty/handy like that to use chalk paint. I wouldn’t even know how to begin to know how to distress it or seal it?? But..if it was me, I would for sure keep it!! I love it!

    1. You’re so sweet! Thank you! I’m going to do a blog post soon on how I paint, distress, and seal the pieces of furniture that I redo.

  3. I really like it. I think you should keep it now that you have made it so pretty. If you come across another coffee table that you like better then you can sell it if you don’t have another place for it. You did a great job redoing it.
    n sell it .

    1. Thank you so much, sweet friend!!!

  6. I absolutely love this table!!! I think you should keep it, it looks like it was meant for the space. Though I have a problem with letting go of the furniture I refinish, I want to keep them all!

    1. Thank you so much!! I always want to keep everything too! It’s such a bad habit of mine!

  7. As I’ve mentioned on Instagram, definitely keep it. It suits your style perfectly and makes the room look so peaceful and relaxing. If I were you, I’d spend every second drinking coffee and reading books in this corner.

    1. Thank you so much!!!
