Not So Shore Thing: Canoe Coffee Table

Not So Shore Thing: Canoe Coffee Table

This could be one of those things that needs to be styled in a room before we start dumping on it. That being said, plopping this table on a white background could be an unfair representation of how much potential the LL Bean Canoe Coffee Table has. Maybe in the hands of the right decorator, in the right room, and with the right accompanying furniture; we could be gushing over it and declaring it genius. It could happen.

So, we're going to ponder on this one and try to come up with a solution. Why? Well, partly because we're curious to see if it can be done...and partly because our neighbor unloaded this very table on us in the spirit of Christmas giving. (They got it from a distant relative as a housewarming present three years too late. And yes, they tried to return it, but the tags were off). Anyone want to take a stab at envisioning a great place for it? We're still stuck on the canoe part...plaid throw blankets and braided rugs also keep parading around in our heads.

We're giving this table a fighting chance before we either re-gift it or donate it to Goodwill. Or hey! Maybe we'll feature it in next week's Scavenger...
