Free stuff really turns me on, and when I find something made of wood, it's so hard for me to leave it on the side of the road. This wonderful side table might have gotten me into trouble the other day. I mean when I see something like this, out the corner of my eye, then just about slam on my brakes.. well, you know what I mean.
At this point in time I have no idea what to do with it or how to refinish it. It is weathered, but the wood is in great condition.
Notice the drawers are missing. I could remove the sliders and just add a bit of plywood to convert the spaces into cubby's? (I wish those who left it put the drawers out with it)
But then, "What do I expect for nothing"
(big smile here)
The 'piggy trivet', I could not leave that behind in the same trash.
At the moment it's out on my back deck. I go out there from time to time and just stand and look at it, wondering, should I paint it or just use a simple stain?
The original finish is long gone, but it shows a bit of distressed green... I'm thinking to do the legs with a soft green stain and maybe the rest of it in white?
There is a space in my master bath? Would look great with rolled bath towels where the wine bottle spaces are.
As you can tell, my brain is turning with so many ideas for this great side table.
What would you do to this delicious relic?
Let me think more about this. One nice thing, our weather has turned for the better and I can once again do some serious refinishing out on the deck.
Leave your comments and let me know your ideas.
What will this piece morf into?
I'll post the finished product soon...
