A family had inherited a pair of side tables with beautiful details. They needed a TV/gaming table and asked if I could help.
First I gathered supplies:
– stain or paint
– shelf hardware
– L brackets
– wood trim
– hardware to attach legs
– Mr. Clean sponges
– miter saw
– brad nailer or hammer and nails
– wood glue
– measuring tape
Next, determine the size of the sideboard:
You can always use painters tape on the floor to visually block of the space.
I added 2 inches for over hang [one inch per side length and 2 for width] to get the size of the top board.
Get a piece of lumbar for the top piece, cut to correct size if needed, and stain or paint it.
