I had initially planned to hang it on the wall and put some knick knacks in it, but then it hit me: coffee table!
So here is how I did it:
The particle board wouldn't come off the drawer sections! There were brads in different areas that had hooks at the bottom, so I had to break off the particle board in chunks to maintain the drawer sections. Then I glued the wooden slats back together and put them in the frame and nailed the plywood to the bottom.
Also, Julie painted her antique table, her first refinishing project. Here's the before:
And here's the after (still wet paint):
I added a second coat of stain to the table, and I have the glass ordered for the tabletop. I plan to add a third coat of stain (I think I can be patient enough!), but here's what it looks like after the second coat:
Some of the stain is still damp.
