Having just converted a smallish old dining table to a vaulted games table
Pics, or it didn't happen.
I am now supplying said pics to move our kitchen table from the imaginary to real.
Table with topper:
Our old table needed replacing, we had this French polished table in the garage. It at least needed to be sanded back and refinished as French Polish is a terrible finish for a kitchen table. (Doesn't like liquids)
So I thought would try a dodgy hack and replaced the frame with a vault.
Workmanship is very amateur, but it looks ok from a distance, and its respectable and stable enough when closed to keep the missus happy.
