Coffee Table - One Man's Junk Is Another Man's Treasure!

When we purchased our new office, we also "purchased" the junk that was left behind. Well, some would call it junk. Not me. The office sits on 2.6 acres that someone thought was a small dumping ground. Behind the home was a pile of large logs that someone wanted to discard. In the middle of the pile, was a discarded cable wire spool.

My son, Brody, grumbled when I asked him to set it aside for me. Some people just don't get it! My plan is to turn the spool into a coffee table that we will use in either the office waiting area, or the screened-in porch. I can't wait to see it when it's done. I have so many ideas on how to refinish it. I am thinking of painting the whole table a cream color, then using a coffee stain technique to antique it, adding a glass top and using the small indented sections in the top (under the glass) to display some of the small items we have found during our real estate ventures (old keys, stones, arrowheads and so on)

Here are a few of my inspirations. If you have any suggestions, please let me know. I would love to hear them! Click on the picture to view the inspirational websites.

Also thought about making a wood top (with old barn siding) like the one below
