This project combined parts from two different original items. I found the frame and legs curbside in front of an apartment building in my Glover Park neighborhood of D.C. They were supporting a large wooden media cabinet that was not worth salvaging—so I left it behind and took home only the metal base. I liked its rustic, antique look, so all I did was to use steel wool to clean it up and reveal even more of the underlying gold tone. The top was originally the main piece of a pine dining table that I found in an alley on the other side of neighborhood. I used a circular saw to square the edges and cut it down to size; used stripper, a belt sander, and hand sanding to refinish the surface; used a router to round off the four top edges; finished it off with three coats of Minwax water-based clear satin Polycrylic; and attached it to the frame with screws. I think this with table, like the best upcycling projects, the final product is greater than the sum of its parts.
