Custom Night Stands

I am constantly looking for potential.  For inspiration from something old or unwanted.  One day I was searching Craigslist like I do and came across a coffee table and side table!  For only $20!  I emailed the guy and picked them up that day.  I just loved the lines of the legs.  I was excited to start refinishing these pieces!

Chalk Paint Coffee Table

As you may know, I am always on the hunt for a good deal.  One day I came across a solid wood coffee table on a bid wars site!  But it was way too orange for my taste.  So I picked up this table for $7.00!  I remember I had a bunch of other pick ups that day, my car was jammed packed!  With my 1 year old in the car at the time too.  The lady probably thought I was crazy.

Sofa table upgrade! Learn to do this yourself

One day my little family and I were just driving up to our house when two doors down, I spotted a piece of furniture!  It had my favorite word on it too, free!  My hubby could tell my excitement and right away say no.  Our house was beginning to look like a furniture store with all the projects on the go.  At that time I think I had about 15 project pieces and a few upgrades to current furniture pieces on the go.  And we had a small house.

I finally convinced him that this piece would only take me a couple days and when I was through with it, it would sell in no time!  We also made a deal that I wouldn’t nag him about his golf day he wanted to have the next day.  Little does he know I didn’t care about him golfing and love it when he can get out and do things he loves!  But I put up a bit of a fight anyways just to ensure I could get the piece 😉   We walked down and grabbed the sofa table.

Bench Make Over

I was given these two beautiful benches.  I loved the style of them and knew they would make for great extra seating on our deck.  But they needed a bit of upgrading!  Here is what to do if you have a similar project.
