Remember this relic from age that brought you polyester pants suits, hot pants, bad hair and comb overs. Apparently a lot of people want to forget that era. I found this abandoned thing at Goodwill. It must of been there quit awhile as I got it for 99 cents.
To be honest the only reason I bought it was the 99 cent price tag. But not any more, I will now keep an eye out for these forgotten reminders of a past some purposely forgot.
Do you see the potential? All I had to do was remove the top part by cutting the wire and unscrewing it in the middle. I screwed the piece under the wood back in with wood screws (it was a nut and bolt system).
Fill in the holes with a real easy tip. Shove a chopstick in the holes and break off. Take some wood glue and sawdust and make a paste and shove in the holes so the hole is fully filled. Then wait until dry, find something else to work on so you can forget about it later. Then sand it down,....tada no more hole.
I did toy with the idea of this.....I just loved it but I needed something more practical.
Ok, I did also think about possibly tile to cover the top of the table. I really wanted to make sure it would be water proof. But that would of been too much time and money.
After filling in the holes and then sanding it down, this is what I came up with. Total cost? 99CENTS!!!!!
All the paint I had here at the house sooooo
It came out better than I expected :)
The top was painted grey and then I used my yellow paint pen to draw the dandelion.
Then I sealed it up with a few coats of clear.
Yep, definitely best dollar I ever spent.
