This is a picture of the bag of moss I purchased.
This is after I hot glued moss on the styrofoam ball. I was pleased with the outcome.
This is a picture of the top of the coffee table. All of my moss balls are in a glass atrium type piece that I scored at TJ Maxx on clearance for $10. I loved the nautical type look of the knotted rope on top and the wooden bottom. I found this cute wooden basket with leather handles at Target. It was a raw wood color so I stained it a little darker to match all my other wood tones in the house and it gave it a more aged look I think too. Then I had 2 old vintage books I took from my collection and added them to the vignette as well because they were the perfect size and filled up the space nicely.
This is all of it together. This is the new (old) coffee table. I love the shade of green it is.
I added the stained crates underneath because they were a perfect fit and added extra storage and I'm all about extra storage. I store blankets, a pillow and magazines underneath right now.
I didn't have a coffee table before so I'm so happy now we have a place to put drinks and feet and anything else we want. My son has already used it for a racetrack for his matchbox cars so it seems the kids like it as well:) It's a beautiful day today so I think we will spend much of it outside. Hope everyone has a good week!
