A Library Table’s second life as a Coffee Table

Recently I removed the desk turned coffee table from the living room and moved it into the family room. I really felt it was to heavy of a look for the living room. Plus we didn’t have anything in the family room, {ha, a room I haven’t shared here or on Instagram as of yet}  except for…
