A Chronicle of my Projects - Rescuing and Restoring Furniture, Dollhouses, Yard Art and other Miscellany
Friday, June 27, 2014
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.
