End Table Makeover & Decorating Dilemma Solution

1 material
2 Hours
There was this eyesore in my living room called a subwoofer. My solution? Cut the legs off of an old end table. Clean the painted-over glass knobs and give the table top a few coats of stain. New end table. Problem solved!
After removing the legs, cleaning up the glass knobs and giving an old end table a few coats of stain, it fits perfectly on top of the subwoofer. I now have a pretty and functional end table. By using things I already had, it cost nothing!
Big, ugly subwoofer
Here was the dilemma. A big, old subwoofer taking up valuable real estate in my living room. It's not tall enough to be an end table.
I cut the legs off of an old, beat-up end table.
Old glass knobs made new again
The glass knobs were covered with red paint. By placing them in a pot of simmering water, the paint easily peeled off within minutes.
You can see the layers of paint under the top layer of red paint.
I'm so happy with how this corner of the living came together.
