I know I have a lot of posts to still catch up on, but I was so excited to show you my little DIY project that I finished this weekend! I just couldn't wait to post the before and after pictures! I did take pictures along the whole time so that I can post a tutorial, but that will have to be another time...I've got too much homework and not enough time!
I saw this coffee table at DI (thrift store) in all it's palm tree glory for $5! I looked past the mosaic palm trees made out of crushed up orange and green tile and saw this wonderful thing I call "potential." I wanted it so bad but didn't think that it would fit in my car. I knew that I would have to talk Devin into letting me take on another project. Not only that, but I would also have to talk him into going to DI with me because I needed his car (to fit the table into) and I can't drive stick-shift. Somehow I convinced him to come with me to take another look at it and when we got there I think he thought I was crazy. It looked pretty white trash! I promised him that I could make it awesome and I told him worse case scenario, we wasted $5...no biggie either way! We loaded it up and I dismissed all homeowrk assignments and other productive activities that I had planned for this weekend in order to start and finish it! Start to finish it ended up taking about 2 hours (if you don't include the time it took to dry). I'm slightly obsessed with it and it turned out better than I imagined!
Take a look:
Total cost: $35
Level of happiness this bench brings me: priceless
So, What do you think!?
