Before & After End Table

Two weeks ago I attended my second auction.  I'm hooked, you never know what you'll find! The result of said auction:  this little beauty pictured below.  I got it for a whopping $2.00. I knew with a little TLC this could be an adorable little end table.

BEFORE:

After:
For a little "extra" dough I sell things on craigslist that I buy @ garage sales.  hopefully this little guy will be gone within a week!  :-) 


Blessings,
Ashley

Creative dough is the best to spend:) Auctions are addictive and I don't think they have a self-help group for that yet!!! LOL!

I LOVE what you did with this table. You totally made it fit the modern/retro combination style that is so popular today! Great job and good luck selling it for $$$. I like your blog, I will be following. I'd love for you to come see me sometime at sceneofthegrime.blogspot.com

Have a great day!

Wow, only $2! It looks fabulous now. My MIL has a couple of similar tables...I wonder if I can talk her into painting them?
