When I was looking around for furniture for my porch I gave myself the challenge of only using yard sale or Craiglist finds. I found everything I needed except for a small table in front of the sofa. I had an image of the table I wanted in my head and I hit the jackpot on a trip to Target.
I then went to the closet section and found some shelving at the end of the aisle. They had corner shelving pieces which once pieced together would fit perfectly.
Yes, I work in my garage. Yes, I bought a second table in case I messed up. No, I did not mess up and I was able to return the other table.
I could have left the white formica top and painted that but I was going for the wood effect. Buying a simple table like this and transforming it to match your space puts your own stamp on it. I’ve seen this same table spray painted gold, turquoise as well as the table top painted a different color. Try stenciling the table top or using painters tape to create a stripe or pattern to match any room. Good luck!
