I've noticed that my coffee tables never sell at shows, I I think I know why. I use them as displays. I think people don't notice the table because they are looking at what is on the table, or they don't want to take away my display table, and may not even know it's for sale.
So, I came up with a solution. I built a simple yet awesome display coffee table so that if I have another coffee table I can display it on its own and this one will remain for my display.
Here's the top! I found this cool/strange old door at the RE-Store. It was a kind of Dutch door, but only the top 18 inches or so opened. Strange, huh? Anyway this made it the perfect length for a largish, but not huge coffee/display table.
I screwed four legs that I found at good will to the bottom and that's it. No painting, nothing, just like that.
Here she is in action, and just to make her feel good, she did get noticed quite a bit.
Here is a close up of her 'charges.' She did an excellent job displaying the little pretty things.
