Flapless coffee table

I brought this lovely mahogany drop-sided coffee table from a fellow crafter. She had a lovely house in the bush and enjoyed crochet etc. Unfortunately it just wasn't very practical - for her or for me. It seems like a great idea having side flaps but it really wasn't. Besides, one of the flaps were damaged anyway.

So, I whipped both sides off with a screwdriver and gave it a fresh lick of.... wait for it.... white paint! There is something about fresh white paint that livens the most boring piece of furniture up.

And you don't need much money to dress things up either! The 'table runner' is two bamboo place-mats pushed together, and the candle holder was a cheap tea-light candle holder, with 3 thick church candles.
