Beautiful Side Table

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...



I promise you I will think of something...

  5. What a smart way to repurpose! I love the wood mixed with the iron. This makes me want to take my same iron table and do this. Maybe you can use the top as some kind of planted garden art?

  8. Ok, so I see those old rusty table's at garage sales all the time, usually in the free pile. Never would I think to put a new top on one. Well, till now that is.
