A previous owner of the home worked on sets for TV and movies (and a lot of his interior remodels were done with leftover set pieces), so I'm imagining some kind of interesting cinematic back story here.
I knew right away that it would be the perfect coffee table. All it needed was a good clean and some legs. And by "a good clean," I mostly mean "to be left out in the sunlight until I was sure all the spiders had moved out."
|Useful, lovely, and spider-free!|
We picked up a few unfinished wood legs for just a couple dollars a piece, and then I stained them black.
This kind of leg comes with a screw attached, so Brett drilled a hole in each corner of the trunk, and we just secured each leg in place with a bolt. Done!
|Bonus: Hermione thinks the new table is delicious.|
Now I just need to re-cover the inside with fresh contact paper or fabric so we can really use it for that holy grail of small home ownership - extra storage! Cue the angels singing.
|This is what an angel looks like, right?|
