I am so thankful legs don't speak to everyone. That way they are still there for me to get my greedy little hands on! This is another thrifty find. A playful puppy had it's way with a corner. There were some scratches and dings. Interesting thing, I also kind of like dings and scratches. They give a piece some character. This one had character in abundance. Just look...
How many times have I passed up on a coffee table because of the glass top and I wanted all wood, yadda, yadda, yadda? Well, no more! I loved those legs so much that the glass top was kind of an afterthought. The glass was in pretty good shape though, only some light wear and tear, no chips, no huge imperfections. My plan was to immulate those great "numbered" coffee tables/desk tops I've seen out there. Only mine would be achieved with the help of some etching creme. This is a during photo. I wish I had thought to take a true tutorial photo shoot on this one. I used my Silhouette to create some vinyl numbers in a variety of sizes and fonts. Adhered them to the glass and 5 minutes under the etching creme, a good rinse, and voila'! And if I were to do it over I would have reversed the numbers on my vinyl and used the etching creme on the underside. Duhhhh moment!
After peeling off all the numbers this is what I was left with. I have to say that I am so very, very pleased with this coffee table. It will be a nice conversation piece in a family room somewhere. I believe in my previous post I also alluded to the seperation anxiety I feel when some of my furniture leaves me. This will be a tuffy!
Come back again soon!
