Last year’s garage sale season I was on the quest for the perfect coffee table that could be turned into an ottoman. I purchased this one and this one for $1 each, but I actually picked up this little gem for .50 cents! It has a wobbly leg so it wasn’t worthy of becoming an ottoman. It actually sat in the garage for a while until I realized that it would work as a good nightstand for Matt, rather than the stacked speakers I had been using.
I just sanded it down, primed it, spray painted it white, taped off the legs, painted them gold, and put it in our bedroom. Much better huh? The Nate Berkus basket I got in our white elephant exchange this Christmas fits perfectly like a drawer for Matt’s stuff. To give it a little height I added an old suitcase I picked up at the same garage sale last year. I already had both colors of spray paint from my master dresser and decorative gold spheres so this whole project rang in for just a few dollars!
Just ignore the hideous carpet under it… it’s getting replaced in 12 days!!
