We've been without a coffee table in our den for a long time. It's the main room in the house where we all hang out and we needed (um, I mean wanted) something. I didn't want to buy a new table since we are on such a tight budget. Instead I really wanted to somehow redo an old table. I've had an idea in mind, but never really felt well enough to do it. But I am so happy to say I finally managed to get 'er done! And...here's my before, after, and all the steps in between,new (to me!), coffee table.
