Upcycled coffee table

All finished!All finished!Price of discarded road side coffee table $0

Paint, primer, sandpaper and stain from Bunnings: $30

Husbands enjoyment at having to by a new sander: Priceless!

 

I found a very unloved and slightly battered pine (?) coffee table on the side of the road and decided to try to revive it. Husband decided it needed the 'good stuff' and we went to Bunnings and spent 20 minutes deciding which sander would be best. In the end we chose 2! Both from the Ozito range.

 

3 days, lots of elbow grease and some trial and error later and this is the finished product! I also seem to have caught the bug to do more and am currently sanding another road side find!

VERY nice DanaR !!! I love it. Can't get enough of the white base and varnished top. It's timeless
