Shakespears Coffee Table
I found this table at the local charity thrift store. It looked like a dining table with all those legs
and it was split down the middle like you might add leaves.....but it was nailed shut
The strangest part was the routed out center part. Now if that had been a square I might have added some cool glass tiles to it. But a circle? Probably not. What to do?
I had gotten two books of Shakespeare Plays at the thrift store a while back the pages were kind of yellowed.
I thought I would like to put those into the middle. So we filled the split in the middle with putty, then I modge podged over the whole thing to seal it.
Then I put more Modge Podge on it and added the Shakespear Pages randomly.
And added more Modge Podge..............Then I painted it all Black,
I took it to the Consignment Store where I volunteer Treasures where hopefully someone will think it is as cool as I do!
