Refinishing a Wood Coffee Table

I have a solid oak rectangular shaped coffee table I bought 30 years ago and the problem is it has smoked glass for the top and is now scratched and outdated. I would like to refinish the wood and replace the smoked glass with something else to update it. Any suggestions?

Visit your local glass, and mirror shop with the dimensions you want and a photo of the piece of furniture. They tend to be really good about custom orders ! (02/28/2008)

Refinishing a Wood Coffee Table

How about a board covered with a textured or colorful fabric or even carpeting. Or you could attach wooden trays or boxes underneath, fill with rocks, seashells or momentoes then add clear glass on top.
I would paint it, easier than refinishing.
