Storage/Coffee Table

Submitted by bvescovi on Wed, 09/18/2013 - 09:57

I am redesigning my family, which is really the children's playroom. I have decided to change it to a beach theme. I saw the project on this site and knew immediately it would be a perfect fit as a storage/coffee table. Within 5 minutes of me completing the box, my three year old started filling it up with toys.

I have to admit it is slightly tall for a coffee table, so I'm debating cutting off the legs. It would be easy enough to do without taking the entire project apart and it would make it the perfect height.

I did have to plan my build around my work schedule and the kids, so I did what Ana suggested and built a panel a day. I cut all the wood one day, then built a panel a day. The last day, I started putting the pieces together, put the bottom boards in and made the top.

So far I have not finished the project. I haven't decided if I want to leave it and just Poly it or stain it with either sunbleached or weathered stain. It is a beach theme so either color stain would be great.
