HOW TO MAKE A SOFA TABLE - recycling furniture





I hate seeing vintage furniture get over-looked at yard sales. Folks just can't see the potential, yet I see it so clearly. That's what happened recently to two gate leg tables I was selling at our yard sale. I saw many ladies looking and thinking then I would hear a husband say "No".




Here is the BEFORE photo of the first table, I couldn't
 even get $5 for it, and it's an antique solid Canadian made piece.
The top piece is damaged with a split and huge crack and I 
wouldn't even try to fix it, and that is all people see. But there
 is so much more to this table then that one broken piece.

All I used was a screw driver to take the top off, unscrew the 
side legs, and screw one of the good pieces back on to the top
 and wah-lah I have a super cute sofa table made with quality
 wood.

A coat of ASCP in Pure White, a little distressing with a 120
 grit paper, and a waxing made it perfect. If you would like to
 see how I use Annie Sloan wax to finish this piece off check
