Window Table

 I found them at an antique store on my travels. 4 lonesome little legs for $20. They were old, paint-chipped, multi-colored and had a lot of character. I had been wanting to make a table of some sort out of a door or window so they were perfect! It ended up the legs were tall enough for a breakfast/kitchen table so they wouldn't do for a coffee table size. I found an old window at a thrift store and decided they were a match. I didn't take any before's of the legs and the window unattached from each other but I did take pics before I painted. 


This was my first table so I was a little green. I first wood-glued each leg to the corner of the table and let them sit for a few days. I could tell that it needed much more stability so I got some L brackets and attached 2 to each leg and it was good to go. Sturdy as could be. 

I knew I wanted to paint the window but wasn't sure about the legs. Then i decided a little chalk paint never hurt nobody. So I did Old White on the legs and painted the window DandyLion mixed with Old White. No tape necessary just scraped off the paint on the glass with a razor when done.


Completely forgot to take pics of this at home before I took to my booth so had to run up there yesterday to get some pics to post....so scatterbrained. This table is still an awkward size. Tall enough for a kitchen table yet couldn't really serve as that. Sort of what I ended up liking about it though because it's so different. I can see it in a sunroom or tiny loft apartment.
