We've had our coffee table for almost 10 years. It was bought at a yard sale, handmade by the seller's uncle. After a few hard wearing years in college we painstakingly stripped, refinished and added new knobs to it. Even with all the time and work associated with it, we still seem to lust after something new, something with a different story and space to put our
feet magazines. Something along the lines of these gorgeously green tables would do the trick!
