Peekaboo Table.


I've been dying for a new coffee table for a while now. The one we've had was bought at a thrift store and I gave it a makeover with a coat of white paint. It was a large solid piece certainly did the trick for a while. We tried to buy a glass one at Structube when we were in Montreal in the fall but couldn't fit it in our car. Not surprisingly in retrospect, since we had everything but the kitchen sink packed into that car. There isn't much shopping in PEI so when I get a chance I take it very seriously!

However, I wasn't entirely crazy about the green cast of the glass anyway and decided it was a blessing that we didn't get it. What I really wanted was something completely transparent, which I found out, means you need to go with acrylic vs glass. There are some downfalls to acrylic though as it scratches quite easily but I was willing to take the chance. I sourced the peekaboo table from cb2 but assumed the shipping to PEI would be a lot and perhaps not worth it. Deciding to give it a try anyway, I called and found out they would send it for $34! I quickly jumped on it and it arrived within 4 days!


It's smaller than our last table at only 38 inches wide. It took us a couple of days to decide whether it was too small or simply that being smaller that what we had previously and the fact that is see through made it feel that way. We've decided that while we wish it were a bit larger it suits the space and it's really not too small at all!



Here is a shot of the thickness of the acrylic.


And another shot of how the clear glass shows off my chevron rug. I felt the last table hid the rug so this is a perk!


I styled it up with some fresh flowers, some of my favorite candles, accessories and magazines and it's quickly become my favorite part of the room!

  3. We've had that table for a few years now and I still love it! It does scratch, but I've found you only really notice it if the sun is shining directly onto the table. I wish ours was a little bigger too, but for the price it's pretty perfect!
