Stone-Top Night Table
Molding adds character and serves as a border for a new cut-to-fit limestone top. A coat of pale-yellow paint is the finishing touch.
- Measuring tape
- Baseboard cap molding
- Miter box
- Wood glue
- 1 1/2-inch finishing nails
- Wood putty
- Primer and paint
- 1/2-inch thick limestone
Measure the perimeter of your tabletop.
Cut four strips of baseboard cap molding (available at lumberyards) to size in a miter box, making a 45-degree angle at each end.
Attach molding around the top edge of the table with wood glue and 1 1/2-inch finishing nails; countersink nails with a nail set.
Fill holes with wood putty, then sand them smooth. Prime and paint the entire nightstand. Have a piece of 1/2-inch-thick limestone cut to fit at a tile store, and place it inside the molding border.
