My sister has been looking for a coffee table for her apartment for over a year. She's like me a little bit in that she is picky enough to do without, rather than settle on something that she doesn't love. I found two mid-century end tables at a garage sale a couple of months ago. There was a little boy "helping" out at the sale and when I asked how much the tables were he excitedly yelled "twenty dollars!". I could tell the mom wasn't thrilled with his assessment of the worth of these tables, but I walked away with a pretty good deal! I thought that putting these two tables side by side would make a unique coffee table and my sister agreed. So, we began sanding, spraying paint, resanding, buying more paint, etc. etc. until we got to an antiqued look that I think we are both happy with. Here is the before and after!
