cost less then the gas to drive and pick it up...

When we started selling off all of the living room furniture...I told Mr. T that I would spend VERY little on the tables and such that would go back into the room. I REALLY wanted a little round table to go in between my 2 green slipper chairs.

Mr. T found this table for me....it was $5.


I sanded the crap out (off) of it...primed the wood and the metal (with metal primer) and gave the metal a nice coat of oil rubbed bronze...and the wood a couple coats of Martha Stewart's Aegean blue. I also had to replace all the bolts, washers and lug nuts as they were seriously rusted...they got a coat of ORB too.

My little $5 table is oh so perfect now.



I LOVE it...and it is the PERFECT height to go with the slipper chairs.
Great find Mr. T....now we just need you to find me a coffee table I can mess with.
