Good morning everyone.. I hope you had a fantastic weekend! Today’s segment of Monday Makeover features this table I came across at Goodwill last week. It was marked $4.75. I dawdled around trying to decide whether to buy it or not, but since it was Tuesday (senior discount day) that means 25% off which would put it slightly under $4.00. So, what the heck, I bought it. (btw.. Mom was with me)
I found this tray for $2.25 a while back… ( I love these trays)
I decided to revamp the table this weekend.. First I had to disassemble it..
The brass was tarnished quite a bit
These were the decorative backings on my dining room chairs. After the makeover, (if you missed it click here to view) I decided to leave them off, but, figured they’d come in handy for something else.
It pays to save things , because you never know. My goal was to spruce up this bland table, perhaps add a little more pizzazz.
The bamboo tray was revamped with a new look as well. I really enjoy working with trays and love how this one turned out. I spray painted it with the brassy gold and of course, used more of the wallpaper samples (I have so much of it – I need to use them.. remember – as I said – I’ll be happy to share – just let me know)
My intention was to use it on this table top, however, it was too big.. But guess what? It fit perfect in between the top and the little rack. So, I used it as a makeshift drawer. Here is the table now
Doesn’t it look a thousand times better!!
The gold gives them a more richer appeal (mind you I paid $5.00 for the pair at a yard sale about a year & a half ago)
This tray went from Plain to Pretty
And the table went from Terrible to Terrific!
