Coffee Table...

I mentioned earlier this week that I was doing some rearranging in the living room. I have it all moved around like I think I want it. And along with the new lamp I purchased I am thinking I could now accommodate a coffee table. So I have been eyeing this one from Ikea... that is until I read the "Good to know" it said Handle with care! A strike, knock or scratch can cause the glass to crack suddenly. 


OH! Well then, count me out, because I can see one of the kids coming through with their toy hammers and telling me it needed to be "fixed". Oops. =)
I guess I'll keep looking.

Have a wonderful weekend! I hope you are having warmer weather than we are!

Isn't it a bummer when you find something you love, and you can't commit to it because it functionality for the family isn't worth it? Oh well! Kids are better than any table, right? BTW, loved your running shoes. How's the running coming for you?

I do love the shoes, although I just can't take the frigid temps, so my running is kind of stalled. I need to get brave and try the gym daycare.

Same here. I've hit the gym a couple of times, but I just can't do the gym daycare, so the hubby works out on his lunch hour and I go in the evening a couple times a week. Looking forward to those 60 degree temps...ahhhh....

It's a lovely looking table - I can't resist round pieces just now, though I know what you mean about Family Damage. That's another benefit of painted furniture; you can just buy a little pot of paint and it's good as new.

What about this similar table from CB2? http://www.cb2.com/family.aspx?c=114&f=4971&q=marble&fromLocation=Search&DIMID=400001&SearchPage=1

While it is more expensive, it does have marble (which could take some wear and tear). One reviewer even commented that the table has stood up to their "two rowdy boys."

Emily I have seen that coffee table, thank you! I just wish it were the Ikea price. =(
