Jessica is sharing a fast and dirty side table project at Live Randomly Simple. While scoping out a soon-to-be-demolished house, she found an antique dresser with beautiful drawers that were "dingy, dirty, scratched and long forgotten about." The drawers escaped the wrecking ball and came home with her.
Debbie at Painted Therapy learned a valuable lesson the hard way: "never put wheels on tables; kids will always use them as trains." After the untimely derailment of her train coffee table, Debbie went searching in the garage for a replacement. She turned this hand-me-down piano bench into a (stationary) coffee table of beauty!
Melissa blogs at Toad Turned Prince. She tells us, "I was driving down the street and happened to glance over and see this sad sad coffee table sitting next to a dumpster. I did a U-turn in the middle of the street and headed that way. When I got there, I could see that it had good bones, but just needed some TLC."
