March Madness #9- {Open Top Coffee Table}



Hey there sunshine! I'm glad you dropped by and thank you for joining me for my March Madness #9! I'm 3/4 of the way through my March Madness Twelve Days, 12 Projects and I'm happy to share this Coffee Table I bought on Craigslist.
 I have been wanting a coffee table like this for years. Well, not really like this, but one that could open and is an adequate size for our living room. Speaking of opening, when the guy opened this one up to show me inside, I was thrilled to see these inside!
The legs weren't mentioned in the listing on Craigslist. I had decided that if the table was real wood and in good shape, I would buy legs to add on to it. I'm so glad I didn't have to, these are perfect! Not only that, but the inside appears to be cedar.
 It took me awhile to decide how I wanted this piece. To start, I sanded it down real good. Then I gave it a couple or 3 coats of General Finishes Antique White.
I used an Antique Mahogany stain on the top, but I'm not really pleased with it.

To be honest, I'm still thinking this one over.
I'm thinking to add some sort of hardware or detailing...I don't know. I had thought to use glaze to enhance the details, but want to be sure before adding it.

 I do love the look of it, so while I'm thinking it through, we are enjoying this table in our Living Room. It will soon be a great place to store our blankets and throws we use on these still so chilly nights.
What do you think?
Which project do you think is coming to you tomorrow? I completed everything in the last collage (YAY!) so here is a new one!
