Coffee Table Makeover!

Hey guys this is an old post that i did over at The Adventures of Ordy and Joon and realized I never posted it here on my blog so i'm recycling a post if you will :) 
Here is the post from back in May of 2011
This weekend we spent Easter with friends and family and even had time to work on a coffee table we have had sitting in our shed for months!
Here is what we started with. The hubs found it on the side of the road and knows how much i love the sound of free :) so he picked it up for me!
 Then i spray painted it with RustOleums Heirloom White.
I bought this piece of pressed wood from home depot's scrap section. Looking back i should have got a piece of plywood but at the time they didn't have any and at the time i was planning on  doing a fabric top so i didn't think it mattered.
 Anyway, so the hubs cut the pressed wood and put it into the coffee table.
If you have read our blog before you know there is an empty lot near our house where we find materials for a lot of our projects. You can check them out here, here and here.
This time we found 4 pallets that we could use the wood from.
So we took them apart and laid them out to make sure they covered the table.
Then we flipped the coffee table upside down and drew a line around the table.
 That is how we cut out the wood planks.
Then the hubs screwed the planks into the pressed board. 
and i gave it a good sanding.
And here it is!
We used to have this square table in it's place but we needed something with some round edges in the room :)
So here is the project breakdown
Table-Free
Spray Paint $3.50
Pressboard $2
Screws & Tools-Free
Wood-Free
So the total was $5.50, that's the price of a cheap lunch!
