Antique truck. So today we're going to do a project, we're going to turn this into a really nifty coffee table. Hope you like it. So the first step that I'm going to be doing the organ on the trunk is, I bought these legs and I'm going to stain them. I chose a cherry but of course, make whatever you prefer, and so the first thing I'm doing is I have a wood conditioner right here which helps prepared for staining, and then you put that on. Let it sit for about 15 minutes, and then you do your first coat of stain after you do that you let it sit and dry for two hours and then you do as many coats of stain until you get the color that you prefer after you do, That you're gonna do a polyurethane coat which is gonna help, protect it keep them from chipping scratching and kind of give it a nice shine. Okay. So the next step that we're going to do is we're looking at recovering the puck. When we got this, there was some damage on the top of it and we really loved the sides. They have some kind of cool vintage stickers on them, but the top has some damage, so we're going to cover them and basically, what I've done is.
I went to the scrapbook store and I found some really fun. Looking struck with paper that really kind of fits in with the theme of the truck and I've cut it to different sizes, and I arranged it kind of how I would like this to go. On top of here just play lately, I actually, I have some areas where the damage has changed the level. This first triangle I mean up later or wash cars on top of it and just keep layering the paper and the Mod Podge until you get your desired effect, so we've done much we're done, watch pod genus. I think we've got some really cool images here, and so what we've done is we've taped up the corners. I didn't worry about that too much with the Mod Podge, because that stuff cleans up with the rag and water really easily, but now what we're gonna do is a polyurethane clear coat and what this is gonna help us do.
This is a coffee table. So what we don't want us to leave the matcha bunch there, because, let's underneath it is paper, so if something spills you know there, we go so we're going to do three coats of this to polyurethane clear, coat to make sure it's sealed nice and tight and We'Re going to give two hours between each coat for it to properly dry all right well, good morning. We have let this kind of dry overnight, and it has a really nice smooth finish on over, after both being able to put coasters and whatever I want to talk with this coffee table. So the next step that we're going to do is actually installing the legs, and we made this easy on herself by buying legs that have posts in them. So it's not a require a whole lot of extra thrilling. I'm actually going to defer now to my husband, who is more experienced than I am, and we're going to drill some holes in the bottom of this. We're gonna install some legs and whatever recommend is make sure you know the size of your posts. If you chose to go with posts, you have appropriately sized drill bits, and then you have the washers and that's to go with those as well all right. So we definitely exam and, as you can see, it's a little bit tougher. But the last and final step is to peel up some of this paint, Magic Erasers spill around the edges and pick up anywhere or I'd spill, some gosh all right. So now we have our finished working table.
