Old green canoe coffee table

Old green canoe coffee table


I found these great old wooden canoe seats that when placed side by side formed a really nice, organic oval-esque shape. I attached the two seats with a small piece of wood, then attached the wooden piece to an old side table base. I painted the base a light peach color which I thought complimented the green on the top. I'd love to hear your feedback!

Thanks for sharing.

WOW! Now that’s a great repurpose. The paint finishes on the top, edge and base work beautifully together.
