My BIG tidy-up coffee table

This is a little bigger than the plan, especially in height.... leave it to me to make things WAY more complicated than they need to be! The trundle is made from 3/4" plywood, but the faux drawers are done with 1/4" plywood. Everything is pine. I wanted to have a nice dark warm cherry color for the finish, but it didn't quite turn out the way I wanted. I am still very proud of myself, but next time I'll use a better wood, like maple or cedar maybe. It's not perfectly square, so if I try to turn the trundle in the other way, it sticks a bit. I like that I can shove it against the wall and plop some pillows on it and turn it into a bench if I have people over.
