You read that right, Friends, 99¢ for a table!! Hey there, and welcome to Trash-to Treasure Tuesday, one of my favorite days of the month! Not only am I sharing a thrifty makeover today, but four of my favorite treasure-maker friends are too! Look for their posts at the bottom.
This table is a perfect trash-to-treasure project! Clearly the person who priced it thought it was trash. I found it while thrifting, just before the holidays. (When I was supposed to be Christmas shopping, of course!):
You may remember seeing it when I shared the before photo of this lamp a couple of weeks back:
See what I did with that lamp HERE if you missed it!
I had to ask the salesperson if that was really marked 99¢?? I thought surely they meant $9.99, but nope, so of course I had to bring it home.
I’m glad I did because it turned into a real cutie:
The top was in serious bad shape:
The person who priced it was obviously not aware that paint has magical powers. Good bye ugly top…
I used my Gray Morning by Behr (mixed about 1/2 with Pure White) in my go-to DIY chalk paint recipe on this piece. I love this pretty blue.
I also decided to add handles to the top:
These are one of my favorites from Hobby Lobby.
I also added these wheels that I had removed from an antique dresser:
It acts more like a little cart now. This would be perfect in a bathroom to hold fresh towels.
Aren’t these flowers pretty?
I love to dress up my furniture makeovers with fresh flowers.
Only these are not fresh…they’re totally fake!
Aren’t they good fakes?
Would you believe that I actually found these at the thrift store?
You just never know what you’ll find! These were not sitting out in the open like this, but up on an out-of-the-way shelf. I almost missed them! I love hydrangeas, so for $9.98, these will tide me over till my real ones are blooming again this Summer.
I hope you enjoyed seeing what this sad table became!
Don’t go anywhere yet, my friends are sharing thrifty trash-to-treasure projects of their own today! Visit each project at the links below the image:
