This is what my coffee table used to look like. It was a thrift store find. For $15.00 I got the coffee table and a matching end table. They were a really ugly. I wrote about them here. Click over to see the picture, I'll wait. Ugly, huh? A little paint fixed em up though, and we've enjoyed them for about three years now. Until Mitch sat down on the corner one night and the glass shattered in about 374,000 pieces. It was like an explosion. Glass everywhere. I was so glad that I don't have carpet anymore and that Bayleigh wasn't here. Rather than trying to have a new piece of glass cut, we decided it would be safer if the top was solid anyway.
Mitch cut a piece of plywood to replace the glass and together we upholstered it.
