I had thought about making it into a ottoman, but after looking at the price of foam and picking myself up off the floor, decided to go another direction. This shadow box table was what I decided on.
|First I add some braces made out of 1x2 lumber|
|Then I added a piece of MDF for the bottom. You don't need to use expensive plywood because you want see the MDF.|
|I add a bead of caulk along the seam.|
|Primed and painted. I sanded the table a little just to give the paint something to hold onto.|
|I got this paper from Marshall, it's wrapping paper! I used Mod to apply it to the surface. Make sure you use the one for furniture.|
|Add a little decorative trim and|
|Tadaaa! A beautiful table you can use to display pictures, shells or what ever tickles your fancy!|
