telephone table before/after

lindasewandsewJanuary 28, 2007

Found this cute table at a yard sale a while back for 50 cents. The ladies thought it was pretty funny that someone would actually pay for their 'junk'. Luckily, my sister loves to sand. She sanded and slapped on some stain. I rubbed it with fine steel wool, and bingo, 50 bucks!! It's a little large, though, for a cell phone. lol Linda

Linda, I can see from your past posts that you are really into turning Trash to Treasure. - Forgot to post the pic of the telephone table here though, will wait for the pic!

I have one similar to yours. I use it in my bathroom for storing towels and handcloths in.

Linda, it's beautiful! What an awesome transformation. I too love refinishing wood furniture. It's a good thing not everyone can see treasure's in their trash or we wouldn't have any fun! Where are you going to use it? If you are a reader it would make a great night stand. ~Justie~

This item was sold. I love fixing stuff up, and more so turning junk into some nutty thing. Because there are so many 'treasures' around the house and yard and no more room to keep them, most are given away or sold. The thrill is definitely in the hunt and the challenge of making it into something fun. Linda
