On Saturday morning, Big Chuck and I ventured out to the suburbs of Montreal to pick up our new coffee table. For months we'd been living without one and finally decided that we had to rectify that. We had been toying with the idea of designing and building something ourselves, but also felt like we didn't want our entire apartment to feel like it came for a hardware store (as our industrial design supplies pretty much all come from home depot). We were so happy to fine this lovely vintage pine trunk on Kijiji and scooped it up as soon as we could.
Our little pine box looks great, it fits perfectly with the rest of the living room and gives the whole room a warm cozy feel. Now we just need to find a rug, tackle our birch bark installation project and then our living room will be complete, for now. I'll keep you posted!
Happy November 1st!
