On my way out the door with a bunch of little items, I saw the tv playing to keep the kiddies happy while their moms found
I convinced the manager that she could give up that table (to me) and another table would work just fine as their tv stand. She had to work a little to switch it up, but
It's scuffed up from being in a thrift shop, with a tv on it, and kids near it...and it's cheap formica top means it'll be a pain to paint, but the shape is really interesting.
The three metal leg tips that it came with were a little gunky, but steel wool is amazing for shining up metal.
Wish I had all four, but what can I say - the table was only $5.
Since I put gray on the walls, and black and silver on the shelves, and silver accents on another table in the room, it seemed like black and silver would work well.
Here's the newly updated table and I love it!
The star is a stencil design that I cut out using a stencil blank and exacto knife. I did the star on the lower shelf first, then did the one on top with a different method...and of course, the one on the lower shelf turned out better.
C'est la vie, right? If I ever feel ambitious (not likely), I'll sand down the top and redo it. Seriously, not gonna happen.
Here's where I might share this little project:
