i've had this pair of end tables for several years. i bought the pair at a "antique" shop that has since been torn down. it's hard to say if it was truly an antique store or a hoarders home who had to sell all their stuff before they had their house torn down. i got a pair for $25. they have functioned for what i needed, a place to put my drink and the remotes. after the move they did not a place anymore, and honestly they are not attractive.
i was going to freecycle them, but decided to just make them over. they could function once again. i only have space right now to display one, but here's what i did.
my hubby thought i had bought a new table. he didn't even remember what they looked like before. i don't blame him, i'd want to forget too.
next project to find a darling blue, green and red striped fabric to do curtains for kitchen and pillows for living room.
