Coffee Table from Scraps

Here's another project from my sister Cassie's house that I never showed you.  That's because she ended up trading it with another sister, so it didn't ned up in her house.  Anyhow, she and my dad made this cool coffee table.

Pretty, huh?  Well, let me show you what it looked like before it was a table.  It was a decorative column and...

...and a door from a selvage yard.

They cut the column into pieces to make legs....

...and they cut the top of the door off.

They drilled holes and used dowels to connect the legs as they wanted them.

Then they used wood glue as well....

...and clamped them while they dried.

Then, to attach it to the top they screwed top of the leg into a square of plywood and screwed that plywood into the table.

Cassie painted the table yellow, distressed it, and then glazed it.

The little ottomans fit under it nicely.

It's a great statement piece in my other sister's family room.  I love it.

She got the all the stuff from George's demolition.  It's downtown Salt Lake and only open a couple times a week.  It's FULL of stuff and nothing's really priced.  You can bargain with them a bit.  It's kind of fun.

That's all for today.  See you tomorrow.  Thanks for dropping in.
