Live Edge Spalted Maple Coffee Table

Hey friends! How does so much time slip by between my blog posts!?! I have every intention to get back to my normal once-a-week blogging routine, but it never seems to happen!
But, I'm back with something super exciting to share!!! My husband and I built a little coffee table today! It's one I have been dreaming about for a couple of years now!! I have been slowly plugging away at trying to finally get my living room finished up, and this was one of the projects on the list.
I've had a huge crush on live edge wood for awhile now and incorporated it into my house as a coffee table. I also love all things mid century modern, so we had to throw some hairpin legs in there for good measure!

I found both the live edge spalted maple wood and the hairpin legs on ebay. The wood came planed and sanded. My husband helped me attach the legs on with screws. I gave the top a couple coats of hemp oil to bring out the grain and I will be sealing it with some polycrylic to give it a little shine.  

The black lines running through the wood is the beautiful spalting!

Next on the list are a couple of new chairs for extra seating and I can call the room done!!

I am so happy to finally have this perfect table in place!
