Thrifted Table, Lamp, Books Etc...

 I wanted to get new tables for my basement, but I knew I wanted them to be funky and like nothing anyone else has. I was at DI, and found two of these for $10! $5 each!!! I still needed tops for them, and again, I was at DI, and found the glass tops on another table for $10 each. I painted them from a weird dingy cream to a chartreuse yellowy-green. I LOVE THEM! I say, "them." I haven't brought the other table in yet, as I don't know what I am going to put on it. It is still clogging up the garage.

The lamp shade was $1.    The lamp base was $1.

Both from DI.

The books were $1 each at DI. I LOVE the reader's digest books. They always have fabulous color on the whole jacket.

The pedestal was $1.    The plate on the pedestal was $1.

Again from DI.

The plant was $3 on clearance at Michael's, and the bird cage was $20 at Tia Pan. I know I don't have anything in it yet, I am still looking for the right thing.

So far, I LOVE how it is turning out! I am still working on the rest of the basement, and will show you more as it comes along.

Have a Happy and Creative Day!

Looks great! I too love the table. So, if you can't find a home for it, give me a call, I have just the spot. :) Love the wire cloche-make or buy? Fantastic job my friend!
