I'm participating in Leigh's Thrify Thursday...Go HERE if you'd like to share a thrifty find!
So remember these side tables I purchased a little bit ago?I got the first one done and then I was dragging my feet taking on side table #2. I think it's harder to have to make the same thing. It's not as exciting. It was especially hard for me to get motivated since I couldn't find a place to put them. I got really motivated because I saw this on Leigh's blog. It is a bed turned bench. I fell in love and looked everywhere I could find for a head and footboard so I could try it. I didn't have much luck. This morning I thought why not try to make a bench with my side tables?? I actually found a board in the garage that was exactly the right size for the top. It used to be the top of my mom's old entertainment center. Isn't that the coolest?? I don't know how that worked out, but I'll take it!! I took off the crown moulding and nailed it to the top of my side tables. If you would like to try something like this and don't happen to magically have the right size of board sitting in your garage you can always buy a piece of mdf at home depot. They'll even cut it for you. You could also check out their wood scraps in the back of the store. Anyhoo, after I got it nailed on I just painted it black I'll just need to buy some handles to put on #2.
