Coffe table-WIP

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

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.
