The wife and I went on vacation to Panama City Beach and the condo we stayed at had a coffee table that she really liked. Got to looking at it and it was an Ethan Allen, found similar on line for $1200.00. We went to Walmart and bought a ruler to take some measurements, she took some pictures and when we got home I made it for her, only $46.00 and some change. Used a lot of recycled wood as the table was the distressed look.
She’s happy and so is my wallet!

Excellent job and well worth the big bucks it cost you t build it. Just a suggestion, never go anywhere without a small tape measure in your pocket.
