Okay, one of my favorite stores to find "junk" (that's such a harsh term!) is Hotel/Motel Liquidators. I go there often and bargain with the owner...if you ever want to go, take me, he'll give you a deal! Alrighty, this is our most recent piece, a metal cart. Even though it doesn't look it, it was really dirty, in a sticky, gooey way! Our vision, an end table next to the couch.
This is the cleaning process in what we like to call the "dungeon", some people call it their garage.
Yes, of course, Ringo is a part of all the family activities...he just sat there and watched though..geez
We cut down the table from about 34 in. to 21 in. and added wheels to the bottom for a more "industrial" look.
Yes, it is a sturdy table, enough to hold *** lbs..
The finished project! We put this in place of an antique table I got when I was around 12 (I've always been fascinated with decorating).
A couple more angles...
This is a table I also got in parts from Hotel/Motel. I went in asking for the bottom of a chair or stool and after many tries, he found this...perfect! It even still has part of the cushion fuzz (added character). I just placed a glass top and there you go...another end table!
Another good find from H/M, a wire basket that now holds our blankets.
That's all for now, until the next "junk" project. Thanks for reading!
