This is the oldest coffee table that I have ever seen and is in so bad condition that the only suitable place for it is our backyard.

So one day, I finally thought that this is it! I have to do something to this coffee table that has been driving me crazy and that’s when the idea of home decorators coffee table hit my mind.

This home decor coffee table idea is by far the best idea that I have ever thought of. Before stating this comfortable home décor table project, I went to my husband and asked him if he mind me giving his beloved coffee table a makeover. Initially, he was skeptical that I will throwing it out since I have been talking about doing so for a long time but then he agreed on letting me work on it.

As soon as I got green signal from my husband, I right away started my home decor tables project brainstorming. I thought of all the ways I can use this table. While thinking of different smart home ideas, I came across the thought of turning it into a bench. Doesn’t it sound interesting?
