My new coffee table.

Yesterday, the last of the Christmas storage boxes was put away.

Today, I get to have some fun putting our petite living room back...But where to begin?

I know! I've been dying to decorate my brand new (to me) coffee table that my hubby gifted to me for Christmas.


It's a beautifully restored vintage railroad cart turned coffee table. I had only mentioned it to him once or twice and how sweet that he remembered...I LOVE IT!...But I love you more Babe :-)


I went with a simple vignette.

There's my thrifty find shoe forms...A bit ironic, I know, but these shoes look cute on the table...Hee, hee, hee.

Hmmm, now what should I do next, the mantel or the sideboard? Maybe I'll take a little break instead :-)
Thank you for stopping by for a visit today.
Your company always brightens my day.




Hugs and Kisses,

I had never seen this object! look what a beautiful wood, beautiful grain. Ana, is amazing! congratulations, it's really good in that room. Another thing I see in your living room is often the church next to the couch. I see your home more and more fond of the things that I see.
a hug my dear. good week

Hi Ana, Your new coffee table is unique. I haven't seen one like it, but I wouldn't mind having one like it. Hubby's do hear us sometime and I think they have selected hearing at other times. Who finished your coffee table did a really good job. Take care and enjoy your week. Your Missouri Friend.

Good Morning Ana...

That is a neat coffee table and those shoe forms were just meant to be sitting on top of it! I love the suttle "industrial" look it adds to your room!
