So far my DIY's in the new house have mostly included sanding, priming and painting. However, my rampant success has given me the confidence to take on a harder project.
Lane and I have been looking for a table for our bedroom. We don't need a dresser, just a long narrow table to sit against one wall. I want something to put my jewelry box on and a mirror. The closest approximation is that we want a sofa-table. They usually sit behind the couch for books or lamps.
The one above is way more ornate than we want, but it is about the right shape.
I also think this one is gorgeous and sort of looks like our dining room table.
The above link has a great tutorial for building that sofa table. I am considering doing that one, but without the shelves. I just love the trim on the sides.
So do you think I am crazy? We haven't found anything we like that wasn't outrageously expensive. I have another few weeks before work starts and this would be such a fun project.
