I've been looking for a round table for my kitchen forever. Unfortunately, they are usually very expensive, and the nearest Ikea is 3 hours away from here. I was beginning to give up hope.
BUT luck struck me while on a trip to the ReStore. The ReStore is run by Habitat for Humanity and sells things like used furniture and building supplies to benefit the organization. I found not one, but TWO round tables at the ReStore, for $25 each!
The only problem is...they looked like this:
Nothing some sanding and a couple coats of paint couldn't cure:
I love Love LOVE having round tables! I put the second one (the one in the picture above) in my craft room and it's given me much more room to walk around it as opposed to my other one.
And the white paint makes it look so lovely!
And while I was at the refinishing thing, I took a look at this drawer I bought at Target some time ago:
I used it in my bedroom before I made my new bedside table and haven't had much use for it since. A few coats of paint and some scrapbook paper and viola!
I love giving old items a new lease on life! It's amazing what a few coats of paint can do. :-)
