|Telephone table to Coffee table - Before and After|
We've had this little piece of furniture for over 20 years and even though I didn't want to get rid of it, it was in need of an overhaul...
|The unit in the entrance hall|
I started by removing the top part that was just glued with wood glue, then I filled in the holes and sanded the whole unit. Because the filler was white in brown unit, I had to sand and sand and sand before eventually the unit could be painted.
I then spray painted it with a glossy white pain with a paint gun.

It now has a new visual and serves as a coffee table in the sitting room, while the former table has gone to the patio.

I have thought about screwing a wooden top to the table in a way that would still enable us to open that door flap (where I can keep my winter sofa blankets) in the style used nowadays (see photo below), as well as making it fit in better with other surrounding furniture in the dining room and TV room that are darker wood, but that's a project for a later date. Right now it stays as is!

I've already mounted my Christmas tree and put up a few other decorations through the house.
I usually do my tree in the first few days of December, but my parents and a friend are arriving from Portugal on Wednesday 2nd and then we're off on a short holiday with them to the south of Western Australia on the 4th, so no time to do it later!
