Side Table Makeover

By Homeroad on Jul 07, 2012
I love to make things over...

Here is a project I just finished that is just my style!

I tried my best to save this table...
it's beautiful but rickety...
I tried to glue it, screw it, nail it... 
no luck!

So...

I took it apart.

And saved the top....

Then I had this old folding table...

with great legs, and I had an idea...

I easily attached the legs to the bottom of the table top...

not so pretty under here!


Then using my orbital sander I sanded the 
daylights out of the table top...

Gave it a coat of furniture wax for protection...

Holy cow is that wood beautiful! 

No need for any words or decorations on this baby...

And see that mannequin... $25.00 reduced to $2.00 because there was a chip... hello white paint!

Good save!

And in case you're wondering what is going
 to happen to the extra pieces...
