Finally, after two trips to Home Depot, three to Ace hardware, one to Michael’s (for the crates), and way too much time obsessing over the finish, our coffee table was assembled and ready to go!
I have to give a huge, huge thank you to Becca over at Vintage Chic for helping me out at the last minute…I had bought the wrong kind of casters at Home Depot and she steered me back in the right direction before I attempted to drill a 3/8″ hole into a 3/4″ board (Drew had also pointed out that this was probably not the best plan). Thank you again for your help Becca! Your project was awesome and I hope my version of it makes you proud 🙂
So now we have a coffee table we both love, although the saga doesn’t end here as we are still working on deciding what to do with the space in the middle…one of the commenters on Vintage Chic mentioned the possibility of putting a wine cooling bucket in there, and when I mentioned that to Drew he was over the moon. So there might just be a part IV…stay tuned!
