Recently, I’ve been going through all my old stuff. I bought a scruffy looking table at Goodwill for $10 some time ago, never looking under all that terrible fake paint stain stuff.
Much to my surprise, it is wonderful quality pine wood. So, I decided to do something with it.
Had another old 40’s table, so I took the legs and spray painted them with a dark Chameleon Purple (changes to dark Burgundy depending on the light):
And voila! After repurposing the old wood from a $10.00 table, sanding, using the legs from an old free table I had, plus some left over metal spray paint for the legs and hardware, here is what is looks like now:
It is not difficult to repurpose old things. It just takes some imagination (or use other people’s ideas, Pinterest is so great for this!) and a bit of effort. Old becomes new again, saving you money and bonus, reuse, recycle – REPURPOSE!!! Total cost: $10.00, a few screws, spray paint & time.
