{trash to treasure}


My friend let me in on her secret. There is a fabulous Habitat Restore here in the town where we live, and it is filled with treasures galore. I can't believe I lived here for 7 years without knowing about it! While there for the first time, I found a table that would be perfect in one corner of my family room. It was a typical wood color, with rounded sides, but I knew I could easily fix both of those things. So, I bought it! I am thrilled with the results...definitely worth the $20 I spent.

BEFORE:



This is after I started priming, but you can see where I cut the rounded sides off...so much better already. I have re-finished many pieces of furniture, but this one turned out to be one of my favorites. One thing did keep? The hardware. LOVE it!

You did a great job! I'm really loving the black furniture that I keep seeing lately. I have a coffee table in my living room that I want to re-do. That will go on my to-do list. :)

Love what you did with this. I just discovered a new Habitat restore that is closer to me than the one I used to go to. Yay!
