My 50 Cent Table

Last weekend I found the sweetest little antique table and a garage sale. For 50 cents.  Yes, 50 cents.  Here she is:

I saw the potential.  It was a bit wobbly, but with the tap of a hammer, the leg was put back into its slot, and viola! No more wobble.  Next, I lightly sanded the entire table.  Then I applied about 4 coats of a turquoise pant with a sponge brush to the entire table.  Once the final coat was completely dry, I used a fine sandpaper and roughed up the edges of the table and legs for an antiqued look.  Here she is now:

I love it! And I really like the way it fits in the living room, but I think this could be one of those pieces that travels easily from room to room.  I’m completely satisfied, and all for a total of 50 cents!
