Another history lesson, lol
These came from the clients grandfathers home and had been stored away for some time waiting to have something done with them.
The coffee table has a layer or plexiglass under it to prevent a child from breaking the glass from the bottom. All three will have furniture glass tops to keep from breaking the windows.

Now that is what I call recycling to the extreme.
I have never seen a reclaimed item used almost as is like in these projects.
I bet it was a “blast” trying to make sure not to destroy the original items appearnce.

However, I hope you made sure that any lead based paint was securely covered, you never know when someone will chew on the furniture!

Table glass will be cut to cover the windows. And yes, loose paint removed and everything sealed.
