What I'm hunting for now: Marble and stone topped tables

 The look is so perfect for very early spring. Stone and marble topped tables bring to mind garden rooms, conservatories, and outdoor spaces. I want to put a long narrow marble topped console table in my dining room and cover it with terracotta potted flowers and herbs. Marble is everywhere as kitchen counter tops currently. If you can’t afford to kit out the whole room, how about a marble center island? The stone topped tables make great coffee tables as well. They add weight and a timeless presence but can still take a beating, as any good coffee table should. So how do you find a stone topped table? Start with flea markets and tag sales- these pieces tend to be 19th century, so the wood of the furniture may not be in great condition. Have no fear! This means you can get the piece for cheaper and then personalize it with a fresh coat of paint (try dove gray with marble and light spring green with darker stone). I'll let you know when I find my marble topped table. Happy Hunting!
