I desperately want to be one of those crazy people who wake up early every Saturday to go to yard sales. I want to be that girl who finds things that would go perfectly in ________ (fill in the blank).
BUT I'm not that girl...usually. I'm typically the girl who needs a bomb to go off in order to get out of bed each morning.
Today, I set an alarm to go to a friend's yard sale and I actually got up and went. I was able to find several things that I didn't even know I needed ; ). And I also found this lamp table.... The lamp part is on the couch bind the table.
It wasn't anything special to look at, but I got it for $2!!! And knowing that I love arts and crafts on Saturday mornings I was up for the challenge of upgrading it!
This table had one of those shine finishes (*blah*) but I'm not one for sanding! So I picked up some primer; I'd heard that Zinsser Bulls- Eye was the one to use. I bought a quart of it, have used it several times and I'm barely half way through it. All this to day, it doesn't take much.
I put one coat of this primer on and impatiently waited for it to dry. After it dried, I put a coat of the paint; I let that dry and put on another coat of paint.
Finally -- after getting some shopping done -- it was dry and ready to be put in place.
And now it matches this other yard sale steal I found a few weeks ago for $5! I hope this inspires you to do more yard sale shopping!
