Metamorphasis Monday = Garage Sale Table

It's Metamorphasis Monday!
Take one ugly sofa table with fake brass handles.
Spray paint it chocolate brown.
Replace handles with mod brushed pewter ones.
The result is a nice little spot in the corner of the room
for a lamp and a few old bottles to sparkle in the sun.
Table was given to us to throw out after it didn't sell at a garage
Table $0.00
Paint $2.00
Handles $5.00.
Total $7.00
Nifty and Thrifty!

  4. That's really being green! We have been refinishing, repurposing and recycling our old stuff, things we get from others for free or snag at the Salvation Army or tag sales forever. Frugal and fabulous. I love it! Great job!
