A New Table

by Chris on October 31, 2011

I decided to spruce up my living room just a bit, and it started with the curtains I made. It gave me a color base for the direction I wanted to go in, and I’ve been bouncing off that for everything else.

The next step? Some new accent pieces. I found this table a few weeks ago, and I knew it was meant to be. vance accent table

Sure is pretty, eh? It’s the Vance Accent Table, and I found it here. I had a 25% off coupon. Not bad for a pretty accent table that makes me want to stop and pet it every time I walk by.

Wanna see my other options? And by options, I mean “tables that are available that would never really be mine.”

Orbit Table $769                                                                                  Morocco Table $416

Really? Who spends that kind of money on an accent table? For that kind of money, I could buy seven, four, six, a lot more tables just like mine!

I was kind of hoping it would be a little more brassy when I got it, but it’s definitely in the bronze/copper family. Of course, now that I have it up to the new curtains, it is spot on! Love it when that happens.

Girl, I have been eying that table for a couple months now! Love it!! I need to grab some chair more, so I don’t know if it will make it into my house, but it looks great in yours! And I love me some World Market!!

Me too, Abi. I don’t get down there enough, but I just love it! Thank you!

This is very pretty. I like the color of the metal a lot :)

Your new table is so pretty! It strikes a great balance between being masculine and feminine, if you know what I mean. It’s not really neutral–it makes a bold statement–it’s more like balanced. Anyway, it looks great in your beautiful room.

Hope you’ve had a great October! I was always sad to see October end when we lived in Michigan. Such a glorious month in that part of the world!

That table is awesome. Simple and yet a great accent

Oh my gosh!! LOVE it! I’ve seen it in the catalog and wondered what it look like in person. If you ever get a whim to spray paint it- I totally recommend Valspar’s metallic gold- it is the best gold spray paint ev-ah. It will give you that great gold finish that all those other pricey tables have.

I like yours the best, it is beautiful!

Lisa @ Creative Raisins October 31, 2011 at 2:49 pm

Very nice, I love the detail on the table.

Liz October 31, 2011 at 3:17 pm

I think it looks PERFECT in that space.

I LOVE that side table!

Thank you, Kirsten!

I love it and you’ve accessorized it beautifully! I need the scoop on the lamp and the curtains: where did you get the lamp/shade and the curtains!!!!!????? Did you make them or buy them? Where can I get some?!?!?!


Chris November 1, 2011 at 10:39 pm

Thank you, Kaye! I actually posted about the curtains (and linked to them in this post). The lamp I found at Hobby Lobby a couple of years ago. It was on clearance for $17.00. :)

kaye November 2, 2011 at 9:23 am

Oops, my bad; you did! I was so excited about the lamp, I missed the link about the curtains!!!! I absolutely love this look and your steal of a deal at HL! Lucky duck!!
