Coffee Table Switch

I recently played musical coffee tables and moved the mirrored table from the living room and put this tufted ottoman in its place.  It’s a good fit!

I added a mirrored tray on top to break up all the beige-  and I like the pop of shine.  The tray is functional too, holding our too many remotes.  I’m lucky that my son doesn’t mess with the tray- he’s too busy playing Star Wars. 

I spray painted the ginger jar with my favorite glossy black spray paint (it was previously white) and filled it with three faux cream-colored hydrangeas.  I just cut the stems so they would fit in the jar.  It finally occurred to me one day to cut them so I could put them in a shorter vase- before I was always thinking they needed to be in a tall vase to accommodate the long stems- duh! And while I prefer real flowers, I’m okay with a few faux ones here and there occasionally.  
The space underneath the coffee table is perfect for storing magazines.  I like to keep a few in the living room for reading on the couch and this shallow basket is my favorite for magazines because it allows you to see many at once and they stay nice and flat. 
I know from reading your comments that y’all play musical furniture too.  I’m in good company!  
keep in touch!

Hi! I’m Megan, mom to a thoughtful teenager and spunky young girl. We call Houston home and recently moved into our dream home. I traded my lawyer hat to become a full-time blogger in 2010. I love sharing my passion for affordable fashion, home decor, organization, & fitness to help inspire you to take care of you!


  1. Ohh I saw that table on Overstock too! I LOVE it. It looks great in there!! We just ordered one from Pottery Barn, and I was debating if I wanted something more like yours. I just purchased two tufted arm chairs that are on their way from Overstock, so I decided a reclaimed wood coffee table might help balance out the room. I'm sure my husband will appreciate it, although I would have everything upholstered and tufted! hah

  2. I was on the Lamps Plus FB page yesterday and saw you there and cast my vote 🙂 Love the new table and the mirrored tray is a perfect addition – did just what you said, breaks up the beige and adds a great glam counterpoint to the table.

  3. Looks so good, girl. I do source that one a lot and love it. Your home is so pretty and inviting, Meg.

  4. Love the new table/ottoman! Love the tuffting too!! And you're so lucky that James doesn't mess w/ that pretty tray.

  5. I loooooove that coffee table!!! Seriously, it's going on my wish list. So chic, so stylish and so perfect for a certain 14 month old I happen to know who wouldn't bump his head or bang too many things on that soft top! : ) It looks so pretty in your living room, I love your house!

  6. Gah! I love this coffee table! We're trying to find one that is more toddler friendly…what do you think of the corners? Would a little toddler head it them?

  7. I recently had those hydrengas in a mason jar (ie-clear) on the table and my guests totally thought they were real. I was like "but there's no water.." they totally didn't notice! they look great!
