This week I want to share my creation of a toy box/coffee table I created out of an old cedar chest with a broken leg.
After I reattached the leg with glue and new screws in new holes, I stripped the finish, sanded the old piece of furniture, and gave it a new coat of polyurethane. I didn't add stain, just let the natural color of the wood show through. It makes not only rustic-looking coffee table, but hides my grand kid's toys when they aren't there. I also made a table decoration that is kid-proof and they can actually play with. That's an entry for another day. :)
