  3. What can I use as a coffee table?

    My wife and I have sold our table set (dining, coffee and end) and are trying to think of some "out of the box" ideas for things to use as a coffee table... Our style lately has been kind of antiquey, but we'd like something of a conversation piece (but still functional) for the living room. To give you an idea of where we're considering going with this, we've already looked at an antique wooden chicken cage and an old wood luggage trolley from a hotel. It doesn't have to be wood, but just not glass. Come on you creative decorators! Help me out here!

  4. Is the top layer of coffee a table removable?

    A friend gave us an old retro coffee table and I want to freshen it up - give it a new look. The legs are made of wood but the top layer of the surface (top of table) is not. I don't know what its called but its a thin layer on top; not paint. It's an actual piece. It sort of feels/looks like particle board like what cheap dressers are made of. Some countertops have it too. So my question(s) is, what is it called? Can this layer be removed? If not, can I paint over it?
