$3 Table

So, I got the metal base of this table at the DI (thrift store) for $3, months ago. It didn't have any shelves, just the metal around the edges. I thought about tiling a shelf, or just doing a wood shelf. I decided on just doing the wood. I didn't want to have to cut down any tile, and didn't want the expense and work associated with tiling it either. I am all about instant gratification! My hunky husband was home today, and agreed to cut out the wood for the shelves for me! Here is how it turned out!!!


Here is a pic of the unfinished wood.


I had planned to put this around the edges, and have used it and loved it on other projects. But again, instant gratification was the key today...


I sanded and sanded after I painted it. The bottom shelf is not yet sanded in the photo.



Again... I needed instant gratification today, so instead of going to the store to find the color I had in mind... I mixed my own out of these.


Here is the finished product. It makes my kitchen look so happy! I am ready for spring!


Not bad for $3 and some scrap wood...


Have a Happy and Creative Day!

That turned out really cute. I love adding a pop of color in unexpected places. I'm toying with the idea of painting my (now almond) fridge red on the back and white doors...

Love, the best thing about painting it is if you want to change colors it will be easy to just repaint it. Great job, I am always drawn to metal furniture and baskets, I would have scooped this up too. Makes ma excited for the soon approaching estate sale season.
