I hope you had a nice weekend!
We did some garage saleing and hung out by the pool most of the weekend. Every so often I would sneak away to "make" a console table. And when I say I "made" a table, I mean I... oh I don't know... I added wood to an existing table to make it look the way I wanted it to.
So what would you call that?
Anyways, I started off with this old table...
(picture was taken with cell phone back when camera didn't work)
I have had this table for about 15 years. I bought it at a garage sale for $25 for our first home. It's small table and doesn't really go with my decor right now, so instead of getting rid of it, I thought to modify it!
I added a piece of wood that I had cut to size at home Depot to the bottom of the original legs with Gorilla glue. Something I learned during this project is that you only need a little bit of glue! >:(
Then I sanded... and....
Sanded. I wanted rounded corners.
Then I added little "legs" to the bottom and sprayed it with KILZ primer.
Once KILZ was dry, I filled in all of the cracks with wood filler.
Then I sprayed the whole thing with a Black Satin and re-sanded the corners once paint was dry to let the white primer show through. And added a new drawer handle.
And Introducing our new hall Console Table... "made by me"!!
Here's the before again...
And now the after...
Not bad huh? I'm letting the paint "cure" in the hallway before I dress it up.
The extra materials cost me about $25 in addition to the $25 I spent back in 1995. I love it!
I'm linking my console table to some of these partaaays!
And now for the Shaklee winners of the Basic H2 Sample!
"Amber", "Esther", "Savannah Smiles", "Bee Cute" and "LoriD".
I'll be in touch today ladies!
So... what did you do this weekend.
