A year and a half. That’s how long we spent looking for a square coffee table for our family room. We spent months scouring Wayfair, Overstock, Pier 1, Pottery Barn, etc. looking for a solid wood square coffee table that was white. [Not to mention dragging her husband to dozens of stores.] This past fall we finally found one at Pier 1 that were were interested in but THREE times they shipped it to us broken.
After the third broken table (it wasn’t even real wood!) I remember seeing on social media a few months back that a friend from high school had a woodworking business in Toledo. We decided to reach out and see if Mike at Wood Appeal Furnishing could build us a custom table. To our utter excitement, he agreed!
We are just beyond thrilled with how the table turned out. We sent Mike two different ideas of what we wanted and he was able to combine all the design elements into one. It’s the perfect amount of coastal, but also simple and elegant. The red oak stain on the shiplap inspired top is just beautiful. It’s amazing how much the white base brightens up the room. Plus, we were able to customize the size to exactly what we wanted and what fit for the room.
I already had an idea of how I wanted to style it but I was pleasantly surprised as it all came together. Every coffee table needs to have personal items (all the books and gorgeous blue bowl from Rob’s sister), some height, some greenery, and a nice tray to keep things organized. I have a hard time focusing on watching my favorite shows now because my eyes just love everything about the coffee table.
If you are looking for quality craftsmanship and stunning design, we highly recommend contacting Wood Appeal Furnishing (you can also follow him on Instagram!) and working with Mike! The turnaround time was amazing and he was so easy to work with. We’ve even talked about having him build us some matching end tables (everything has to flow am I right?).
We hope you like this table as much as we do! It really has transformed our family room and we love showing it off to our family and friends (and of course our blog readers!).
As always, thanks for following along with us as we navigate this exciting time in our lives!
