Coffee Table

Back in April....lets count....that was 9 months ago, I made a comment about how I scored something great at DI, which I did!
The redo has been completed for a LONG time, probably 8.75 months, but I never got around to taking pictures.
I finally decided that while I was taking Christmas decor pictures that I'd snag a few of the table. I threw everything from the table onto the couch and...
without further ado...

I give you...the $25 table.Solid, sexy, and distressed.

We bought her in her natural 90's stain. (p.s. there is no way to make these pictures look good or cute)
this picture is from after we sanded her

She came with lovely rounded legs.
And now she's BLUE and as cute as a button. She even has a green polka dot drawer knob, but of course I don't have a picture of that.

I love and adore her imperfections and ability to withstand some tough love.
I hope she stays for a long while.

Steps:
sanded
painted
waited
distressed
polyurethaned, for water resistance
