Take a look at this before and after (or should I say, “progress”) shot… there are a few changes, like better accessorizing, but one is most notable… who can be the first to guess what it is?
After / Progress:
And yes, that is a fake plastic pot with the fern.
Don’t bring it up… I need to find a replacement pot pronto if it’s going to be inside for the winter.
Were you the smarty pants who guessed a new coffee table? If so, pat yourself on the back.
We found it on the side of the road.
I gleefully tried to load it into the car and then AJ jumped right out and tried to save my pregnant body from doing any work… although it’s not that heavy at all. Compared to say, moving our zillion pound couch.
Don’t even ask me why someone would throw this out.
I just love the legs… this is the type of coffee table I have envisioned in this room for a while now because I wanted something lighter than the black Pottery Barn one we have (which, I have moved and we are not getting rid of it, don’t even think about trying to claim it).
It’s obvious some kids thought this was their own personal coloring table but that’s not a hard sanding job, especially because there isn’t an ounce of polyurethane on the whole table… which will make it a whole heck of a lot easier to refinish than our kitchen table. Speaking of kitchen table, I just love how the two styles are so similar since they are in rooms right next to each other.
So, tell me, what was the best thing you found for free on the side of the road?
Join me on Monday for Makeover Monday right here…
Can’t wait to have you stop by!
