small end table/arm rest/cupholder

another small addition today. I was going to build an end table for the sofa today, but i found a small cabinet that is exactly the right width at habitat for humanity re store. i made a top for it out of plywood, sanded and rounded the edges, and cut a hole for a cup holder. i tried staining it but the color looks like crap. i think I'm going to hit the whole thing with Rustoleum before i mount it to the floor. i just need to choose an appropriate paint color.















photo makes it look crooked, perhaps i moved while taking it:

That color is worse than crap. Maybe it is just the light. Matching the cabinet front or the rail would have been nice. It looks like you have three colors going on there, rail, cabinet and top. If not, could you strip the cabinet and match it to the rail/top?

i agree, and i don't think it is the light. you have a good point about the railing as well. i need to make it a unified color and try to match the railing next to it. other than the color it seems like it will function well.

Re-doing things on a skoolie project seems to be the norm, at least it is for me. Don't worry, you'll get it to the point and color you like and things will great.

Thanks BC, im going to try to figure out a way to get as close to the railing color as possible today, and at least make the cabinet less of an eye sore.
