Yesterday I went to a local stone showroom to go through their marble remnants.
Marble and granite remnants are perfect for coffee table and side table tops! This is a "designer trick" used by many, but before yesterday I've never done this. It was really fun and I was wondering why I haven't done it sooner :)
Here is the piece I found in the pile:
It's Carrara marble and only $288 for a 26" x 50" piece.. the perfect coffee table size. This is especially great if you already have a base you can use. This piece may become a coffee table for the navy room I shared recently.
I also found this beautiful piece:
This piece was really long and skinny (about 18" deep). I love the raw edge, too.. This piece would be great cut down for two small side tables. It would also be sooo cool in a kitchen used as a small counter on a long wall with some stools underneath!
I'll definitely be doing this more often, it's really fun "discovering" discarded pieces and imagining how you could use them.
