Dumpster tables.....

.......that's what Danny called them. I bought these at a yardsale (2 for $10) last year for The Fairy's Rest and they were not pretty but I could see the potential at the time.
He could not!
He really really wanted to take these to the dumpster or better yet, cut them up and burn them in our outdoor furnace!
I got up the energy and "want to" today to finally start painting them.
I was just about to let him convince me that they were not suitable for using.
I am glad I didn't!!
I just love how the "character" of the wood shows thru after painting them!!
I have to admit that they were just downright dog ugly before!!
(don't tell him that I felt that way, OK?)
I used Rustoleum High Gloss black spray paint.
Odd for me huh?
I usually paint everything white!!
I love the way they turned out and I can't wait to see them tomorrow at The Fairy's Rest with the black lamps sitting on them!!
I also can't wait to see my husbands expression when he sees them......he will probably think that I bought new tables!!
I am visioning some other items in my house coated with a little touch of color......
wink wink

Very nice! Men just don't get that sort of thing. Just rub it in a little and tell him how much money you saved .... I love it.

I am so going to do that the next time I find an ugly table at a yard sale.
