HOW TO MAKE A SOFA TABLE - from a gate leg table

I hate watching furniture that need
TLC get over-looked at my yard sale.
There are pieces that other folks just
can't see the potential in yet I see it 
so clearly. That's what happened this 
past weekend, two gate leg tables got
passed over numerous times. I saw
different ladies looking and
thinking then a husband would
come over and say "No".

Here is the BEFORE photo of the first of the tables, 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

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
