A blog about my interests, which include crazy quilting and various and assorted other artsy pursuits and sometimes known to contain mumblings of a random nature.

Before and after

We needed a new (or at the least, new to us) end table for between our chairs in our new living room.  We looked in several places and finally discovered a nice one in our local Buy & Sell shop but we didn't like the colour of it. 

Above is a more-or-less 'before' picture.
The table had good bones, but didn't fit with our decor as it was.

A light sanding, some black spray paint,

Not bad for $35!
