Last week I posted about my recent Craigslist table. It was looking a little something like this, when my darling hubby said he didn't like it for our kitchen, and I decided I still wanted to keep it.
I decided I wanted to try and use it in the kiddos playroom. Now the base was clearly too tall, but my Mom spotted this bad boy at a garage sale close to my house.
It is super sturdy, the PERFECT size and only 5 bucks!
I started by cleaning it really well with some soap and water - it was a bit icky. Then I spray painted it with Rust-oleum gray primer.
And topped it off with Rust-oleum satin black.
And it was now ready to be assembled. Now I say "assembled" lightly. What I really mean is putting the top on the newly painted side table. I still need to bolt the two pieces together...
It is perfect...perfect size and perfect height. And I love that there is even a shelf on the bottom.
And these adorable chairs I picked up at a rummage sale for $2 bucks each - I know, I should have bought all 20!
My kiddos love it! My daughter was coloring on her new table instantly. And before I knew it, they called me in to show me this:
They were so proud of themselves...needless to say, the table is perfect for the room and is already loved.
Now I just need to figure out what to do with the base???
