Shane designed this table on his own after I showed him some Pinterest examples of ones that I liked. I really wanted a second level to the table so it would help serve as some practical storage. I think this is a great kid-friendly option too because it would be a great place to stash toys! For now I have a few baskets underneath where I store books, remotes & magazines.
After the table was constructed I stained it with Minwax Dark Walnut wood stain. I kept going back and forth about whether I should put glass on the table or figure out another option. Glass would work, and I could do a cool painting or stash photos under it. However, with the dark color of the furniture, things really needed to be lightened up. I had a mirror cut to fit the table exactly at local auto glass shop. It brightened up the area so well and reflects the colors of things hanging and sitting around it!
