Sort of a before and after. An after picture during the day would make more sense. The coffee table is part of our futon set that we bought when we moved into the house. During the carpet install we had EVERYTHING in the dining room. Instead of moving the coffee table back upstairs we tried it out and like it so far. The old coffee table is from the after Christmas sale that Target had in the olden days-- 7 or 8 years ago. Brown rug is being sold on Craigslist, hopefully today!
