I liked the designs on this little coffee table. It doesn't have a top to it, maybe it was supposed to be glass?

Anyways, I haven't done anything with it, mainly because I do not have any room for another coffee table in my house.

PS- where could I find an oval piece of glass to fit this? Do they do that at Lowe's or Home Depot? Is it expensive?

I love the dainty details of this table. Posted: 9:04 pm on January 21st

Maybe you could use an oval frame for the top and just fill it in with a piece of wood, glass or fabric. Just a thought . . . good luck!

I would gold leaf the legs and sides(or spray paint gold, then burnish) and get a piece of old plywood that is strong enough to sit on and trace and cut for a "top", then pad it and put a really cool solid covered fabric on it like crushed velvet.
