One night after a heavy meal, I thought I’d take a drive to the local Goodwill (needless to say my new years resolutions do not involve exercising more).
And lucky for my lazy self, I found this table sitting in a dark corner of the store.
She had seen better days, but I did me a bit of research and she happened to be a nesting table , and sold out on etsy, here, and quite a few other places.
I don’t know how much the set sold for on those sites, BUT this lonely faux bamboo table was priced at $8.08 (such a random price) with another 75% off.
With the discount, it was mine for less than $3!
For an extremely easy transformation, I just gave it two good coats of this that I already had on hand:
And here she stands, my cheapo side table (with bad lighting):
ahh… much better. I added a tray to the top just so I wouldn’t have to worry about plunking things down on the glass top.
It also fits an IKEA wicker basket perfectly, which will carry extra blankets, extra slipcovers for the breast feeding pillow, burp cloths, and all the other necessities I’ll need.
And a close-up of some other things of importance :)
and my final bamboo installment in the nursery. For less than $3 (just love the way that sounds!) ;)
And it looks great beside my painted curtains! :)
Well, today I begin my maternity leave (3 weeks left until the little gaffer joins our family!). I’ll be spending it prepping the hospital bag, catching up on mama books, and getting some good ol’ rest (I hear from many that it’ll be my last chance to in a long time!). :)
I hope you’re having a lovely Monday!!
