Coffee Table Quandries : )

This is the ALMOST finished product!
I still haven't painted it or attached the hardware. I wanted it to look like an old library flat file table.
I think it's going to be really fun once it's finished, but I want to be sure of how I want to paint it before I get started.

These are some very unprofessional photo shop mock-ups.

Note: The light brown tops represent a stained wood top that would look aged.
