Coffe table-WIP

cathyscacheApril 2, 2009

Started on a coffe table last week. I took the top from an old wood desk and refinished it, because I liked the shape of it. I then attached it to a small bench that I wasn't real fond of and made myself a coffe table. I added glass of course and I glued the last birch bark panel on this morning. I will grout tomorrow. All that will be left is the decorative nails, which I have had to order.

When my husband saw the 2 together he asked and I quote "What are U doing now?" I said making a coffe table. He shook his head and wallked away. (Again he thought I had lost my mind)!! Go figure!!!!

Well this morning he admitted it was looking pretty good. I love when I prove him wrong!!!! Later, Cathy

Yeah, I'm shaking my heat too - at your speed, ideas and stick-to-itivity. W/LOVE to see you work. Don't know when you sleep, but you must be young to get so much done so quickly.

Hi all, THE COFFE TABLE IS DONE!!!!!. The last of the 4 pcs. They are all now adorning our living space!!! I'm sure glad cause it seems like I have been working on these 4 pcs forever. But I think they were well worth the extra time. Anyway I am now on to other things!!!! I think maybe a headboard?? Cathy

Thanks guys. I truly am loving looking at these when I get up in the mornings. Oh Slow you make me laugh!! But no my back needed a break last night. I have also decided we need matching end tables (might as well make it complete). So I'm headed to town today to see what I can find. Here I go again, but they shouldn't take too long and that's only if I can find some.
I also need some more glass. I have to order mine so it will be a week before I can even start on the tables or headboard. So I will have to come up with someting else til my glass gets here. Maybe pots for the deck. Not sure yet.
