My New End Table

I showed you this wonderful new end table that I found at GW for $12.99, it needed a little tlc - --

 and then how nice it looks after it was repaired.  A little steel wool and stain and it's almost good as new.


Next I just needed to find the perfect place for it.  It matches the wood and style in the living room, so I decided that is where it would find a new home.


Since this is such a small room, I can't use a very big table, so this turns out to be the perfect size.


This is what I've had there, not an end table at all, but a plant stand.  It was the only small thing I had, so I made it work.


This looks so much better and appropriate.  There's also room for one of my southern ladies and a really tall cloche on the bottom shelf.


I switched the two table lamps around, this one was on the draped table on the other side of the sofa, however it is taller, so it is a better height for the shorter table.


I'm thrilled with the look.  I think it turned out perfect for this area and you just can't beat the price.

So, what are you redoing and what treasures have you found lately?

  33. Hi Marty - what a great find at Good Will. I haven't had as much luck at my GW here on Long Island. But, I think you have to go more often than I do!

    I am a pretty good re-finisher - but I have a question for you. I bought a gorgeous table that is distressed beautifully (and it's a rich dark walnut color) - great wormholes and dings - beautiful But...there's some spots where there's residue from one of those plastic tablecloths being on it for too long. I did do a little bit of Goo Be Gone -but I am afraid of taking the finish off. I also tried some steel wool to get this sticky residue off. No luck - I got some of it off but not enough. There's also a bit of a milky stain (probably from something wet or moist being on it) in the center of the table. Any ideas on how to refinish this? I may have to take everything off it and re-stain it - but...I thought I'd ask around to see if some of my refinishing pros could help!! Thanks...Linda

    PS - hop over to my blog to see a beautiful ceiling design that I did. I will be putting this on some link parties today!

  34. It's perfect, Marty. What a great find.

  35. Marty, Your new round table is perfect there. What a find!! Our Goodwill is not a good one at all. I think, sometimes it must be the area they are in because folks do donate things...and to find nice things you usually need to find a good store.
    LOVE the table! :)

  37. Marty,
    I'd say you found the "perfect fit" for your living room! The round shape softens the area nicely!The lamp and cloche with the figurine mimic the same softness in the table! Simply elegant, dear friend!
    Fondly,
    Pat
