Over a year ago I was walking Starbuck one afternoon and I saw this table sitting in an alley next to a dumpster. Two of the legs were missing but I saw potential. We went home to get my truck. I quickly used the other half to make a corner shelf for my wife’s craft room. The half in the picture sat in this very spot for over a year. The legs were put on the lumber rack in the store room, then nothing.
I didn’t have a plan for it, I just knew that it could be turned into something. Then we pulled out carpet. Then I was focused on my rifle reloading and setting up that part of my shop. Then we redid the bathroom. Then I built my wife’s Christmas present. Then we painted. Finally around the end of February I got to start working on my small business.
Over the course of a single Saturday afternoon I was able to transform this trash into a nice little gem.
Phase One: Cleaning it up
Phase Two: Building the new base.
Phase Three: Filling, Sanding, and Priming
Phase Four: Painting and Finishing
I first spray painted this black, then dry-brushed turquoise paint. When it was dry I lightly sanded with 320 and sealed with clear coat
It came out great, and was a very fun little project. I’m asking $125.00 for it locally. Thanks for reading.
Peace be with you,
