I'd love to do this for a tall/narrow wall table: DIY coffee table. Use old base/legs, remove top, and add your own stained wood top. Now I'll be on the lookout for an old coffee table that I can do this to!
Cute idea for kids' table.minus the chalkboard paint for me. ~ Don't donate that old coffee table just yet! Use chalk board paint and bright colors to make the perfect kid's table that your children CAN draw on.
