First you go to lowes, get 2 2x4s and a piece of wood about 4 feet square. Cut each 2x4 in half, and connect the top of each one to the square piece of wood. Then stain. Proceed to put infront of couch, put a nice picture filled book in the center, and rest your coffe upon the space un-occupied by said picture filled book.
And thats how you do the mod you should do. Welcome
