Redesigning a coffee table
The table measures about 42 inches square and is about 18 inches high. Each corner has a drawer on it that is seldom used but we like the look. Although, we would gladly sacrifice one of the drawers to have one corner cut off.
In the first picture you can see the fireplace hearth; we want to open this aisle. In the second picture you can see that this aisle leads to the back door (a door that is used almost every 15 minutes. Or, it seems like that.)
The finish is a distressed white oak -- worn, very worn or ranch rustic. We're a working goat ranch and need tough stuff.
However, I eventually want to refinish this table to a turquoise washed effect because we are Native American fans and have decorated our home with many Native American artifacts.
Ah ... do you refinish furniture, as well? If so, this piece and a dresser in the bedroom both need to be refinished in a turquoise wash effect.
I am open to design options if you have better ways of redesigning this table. Thank you for your consideration. I look forward to hearing from you about redesigning our table.
