What became of that yucky coffee table?

When I posed the question about what I would do with this table:

I was especially tickeled by this response
"Mmmmm.... let me guess; paint it white with some distressing???"
Good guess Debbie, but not this time. Actually the table was not going to continue being a table at all.
I cut it, and painted it (very pale green, not white) and then yes I did distress it. But It's not a table anymore.


It's a wall shelf....
I added a piece of wider wood on the top to give it more display space, but beyond that, this was a pretty easy project. Once I got DH out there with the circular saw that is. I was afraid I'd cut off a limb if I tried it.
So that's my table project, I'm going to do the other side now for sale, and keep my eye out for more neglected coffee tables with great lines.

I have some ideas on my blog re these things if you want some inspiration come on over and visit. I have them grouped into repurposing/recycling category on the right hand side. Cheers. I'll be back for more!...Pam

That is the most creative use of a table I've ever seen. I love it! I could see some pretty plates hung between the "legs".

Brilliant! I love it! Alas, now I have to go buy that faboo but unrescueable coffee table I've been eyeballing for years at a local store. Thanks for the idea. Can your DH come to VA? XOX

What a great idea for the coffee table. I saw something similar on HGTV where they used a dining room table cut it down as a mantel.
