For about a month I had been debating what to do for a coffee table in our screened in porch.
I originally wanted to make a table myself like this one
But after creating a daybed for the space I decided that was enough building for me... also when all is said and done the DIY wooden coffee table would cost a little under $150... which I was not all that excited about.
So I had been looking for other options. I was about to just cut off the legs on a NASTY table that we use to have and refinish but I was NOT looking forward to that project and as a result I had been stalling. AND I'M HAPPY I DID
On 4th of July I headed over to my favorite thrift shop, B-Thrifty, in Woodbridge, Virginia. On major holidays they frequently run a 50% off sale on all of their merchandise (to include furniture).
And look what I found!
The wicker chest was not in the best shape. The wicker was torn off in a few areas and the paint had seen better days!
But just look at the price!!!
and remember they had a 50% off sale that day so I took it home for just under $20.00!!!
Once we got home I promptly removed all of the hardware and got my spray paint on!
Much nicer... As you can see I did a white coat on the base and I did lime green (that I already had on-hand) on the hardware!
Here she is all finished!
LOVE HER and I love the $20 price!
