Console Table

A few weeks ago, we found an oval coffee table.  We didn't need a coffee table, but I liked the legs on it and thought I might be able to use them in remodeling a piece of furniture in the future.  My wife suggested we cut the top in half to make two console tables.  And so our search began for 8 legs to use for the two tables.  The first legs were created from a baby bed that we found tossed out with someone's trash.  (The remains shown below).
I turned the half-round table over and began to figure out a way to attach the legs to its underside.  I also decided to incorporate the original coffee table's apron into the new console table.
Today I finished the assembly and have sanded down the table.  
It is awaiting a decision about what color to paint it!  I'm pretty pleased with the result.

Sweet and Demure

Sweet and demure
are the words my wife uses in describing this table.
It really DID turn out great!

I'm Back!

After several weeks "off" due to quadruple bypass surgery,
I'm back!
Mixed some cream paint with some white and applied a coat to this table.
