A Salvaged Side Table

I’ve been on an “out with the old…” kick lately. While shopping for new stuff is fun, it’s expensive and leaves me feeling empty. This small pedestal table lived in the guest bedroom of our Chicago apartment. We didn’t take the best care of it upon moving to Seattle, leaving it to deteriorate out in the elements –  and with all the rain, snow, hail, and sunshine we’ve had, deteriorate it did.

Rather than abuse the table further by kicking it to the curb, I decided to give it a little love and a second life as a patio side table. I did my best to sand and buff the rough and warped spots but couldn’t smooth them all out. Then I used a weather resistant spray paint to give it a fresh color and added a couple of ceramic tea light holders.

It looks pretty good, don’t you think?
