REDUCE, REUSE, RECYCLE

When I awoke this morning, I decided to take on a fun little project. A while ago, I caught my mom throwing out some old furniture that she hadn't used in years. I knew we needed side tables, so when I saw this, I thought what the heck, I might as well give it a try. So after a lot of sanding, painting, distressing, and new hardware, this is the result.


Before 1970's U-G-L-Y

AFTER

It only took a few hours to transform this into something that I actually like, and I love that I was able to recycle something that would have gone to the dump.
