Cupboard Door Turned Sofa Table

I have had this, what I presume large cupboard door for quite a few years.  I picked it up off a pile of roadside trash and it has been living its life as a place to store things on top of in the garage rafters.  I pulled her down and did a preliminary sanding.  I was overjoyed to find orange and turquoise/old time green underneath.
I built a base from 2x4's, and a lot of sanding later (the top coat must have been good enamel), some stain and I had a great sofa/entry/buffet table.


 The lines or striations are from the wood (?) grain, I like them :). If I had been making this for me, the legs would be orange or turquoise, but this one is for sale and I think the stained legs with the fun top will sell better.

  3. I dunno, it looks pretty nice there behind your sofa...are you sure you want to sell it? The top is so unique after all your sanding and elbow grease!
