Recently my husband and I went out to dinner to celebrate our 29th wedding anniversary. We showed up about 15 minutes early for our dinner reservation. When he parked the car, I got out right in front of a thrift store. Awww...shucks! I asked him if he'd mind letting me take a quick peak inside. He was more than happy to head to the display of used books. I went straight for the furniture. I'm not quite sure why I did this since we had driven my Acura that night, but you never know.
This is the first piece I spotted. U.G.L.Y. That orange sticker on top said $5! Awesome! I could already see the possibilities. We paid and my husband squeezed it into the back seat of the car. Thankfully we had taken out one of our grandkids car seats a few days before. We normally have 3 car seats that fill the whole back seat!
I sanded the top, coated the whole piece with primer and three coats of paint. I spray painted the drawer pulls in an oil rubbed bronze finish.
I love the clean, fresh and simplified look of this little table now. I'm tempted to keep this one but I'm going to sell it. Hope the new owner has the perfect spot for it!
