Before & After

Four Dollar Side Tables

Thursday, February 23rd, 2012

Hello all, it’s almost Friday but I wanted to share one more DIY project I wrapped up this week with all of you.  A few weeks ago I scored some solid wood side tables at (where else?) a thrift shop and they were four dollars each.  Four dollars?  Sold!  The wood tops needed some work but I also loved the idea of redoing the bases a crisp white gloss paint.  Here they are:

Can you believe this price tag?  Hello, you’re definitely coming home with me!

The tops were in bad shape, but that’s nothing a little sanding and new stain won’t fix.

Pedestal Table with Overlays

Monday, February 20th, 2012

Hello hello, happy Monday to you! Hope your weekend was swell, we didn’t do much other than little things around the house, but I did finish up an end table project I started a week ago.

I was able to complete this makeover with a product I heard about last year called Overlays. This fretwork product is so smart and I was dying to try it out – it allows you to take an ordinary piece of furniture and personalize it with a patterned design to turn it into a one of a kind.  Hello, speaking my language now.

So I found a little black pedestal end table at Marshalls last year for $49 – a solid wood piece and a classic accent table, but I wanted to jazz it up.  I sent a request to the innovative ladies behind Overlays to customize a Lola pattern for me and within a week I had my custom sized overlay shipped to my door.  With it I was able to take this basic black end table and add that extra detail to make it my own personalized pedestal table.
