I have a serious issue with getting an idea and not letting it go.
Friday morning I woke up and decided that I didn't like my coffee table...
I paid $2 for it over a year ago and it has about 246487121 coats of paint on it.
SO! I went on the hunt for a junky, old, ugly coffee table that I could play with!
After 3 garage sales and 4 thrift stores this beauty pulled up at a local thrift shop as I was about to leave. The man screamed out "Ma'am! Com'er and see if this'n is ulgy 'nuf for ya!"
...and it was :)
...I only wish that I had got a picture before I took off the gold felt that covered the doors on the other side! :)
I had no idea where I was going with it and did not see it soaking up 5 CANS of spray paint before I even got to the top! WOWZA!
So I decided to go 2 toned and painted the edges cream and added some antique stain.
I have come to love it! My photos are not great and they don't show the antiquing very well :(
Don't think I am going to put the doors back on. I like that you can see the books and it doesnt look like I am trying to hide a bunch of junk under there like I do under my TV! ;)
Loving my jars that I found while looking for a table!
I added random things in them until I decide what I want in them all the time.
Loving even more that I paid $1 for all of them! Yay!
