Rummage makeover. The coffee table originally had the sides that folded down. When I began this project I was going to redo them also.
I took the table apart, sanded it, filled in the worst chips, then painted the legs and side trim. Once it was dry I applied 4 coats of clear polyurethane, then reassembled the table. I liked the coffee table so much without the sides I left them off.
