Pottery Barn Townsend Coffee Table

I'm so happy to report that we finally have a coffee table in our living room. I haven't really talked about this on the blog yet, but our formal living room has been coffee table-less for about 8 months. It never quite looked complete in there. It was a real issue that stressed me out on the daily.
Talk about #firstworldproblems.

I was very lucky to be able to score this beautiful Pottery Barn Townsend Coffee Table from a Facebook friend who was selling it for $85. This table retails for around $500 at the store.
It couldn't be more perfect for our home; it was the perfect length, height and color. It was literally meant for my living room. Not to mention, it's a crafter's dream come true, am I right? I love that I can change out the details inside for any occasion.
I went to Michael's and filled my basket with lots of Christmas goodies. Our formal living room's holiday theme is gold, silver and white, so I used those accent colors to tie everything together. I was able to use some small wooden signs left over from my craft fair that fit perfectly in the compartments. 

Here are some pictures that I found on Pinterest to inspire me: 
Sorry to say that this table isn't available through Pottery Barn anymore. I'm trying to locate a DIY knock-off tutorial so that anyone can enjoy an amazing table like this. Please let me know if you come across one!
