Q: Hello, I recently came across these 2 little lovely ottoman/ table looking things (larger photo below) and instantly fell in love with them. (Everyone thinks I'm nuts) I have wonderful visions of them being revamped and used in my living room in place of a coffee table. However, I have no clue what to do with the tops of these bad boys. Currently they are topped with a block of laminate formica covered something.

I don't exactly know if there is a way to freshen up the laminate or top it with something else that is attractive and durable enough to withstand my son's beatings. I was also like to put some sort of leg on them to make them taller, and will probably paint the sides a fun color. Any help would be appreciated.
