Fabulous thrifty find!

Quite the cute little table!
This gorgeous little table was for sale at the local thrift store, imagine my surprise when I looked at the tag and it said $3!!!! Yes, three dollars!!!
I scooped it up and brought it home to get some loving. It's been in the hallway for months and I finally got the right paint (that $8 one I used for the nesting tables) to use on this cutie. It did have a broken joint, but since it's not like anyone will be sitting on it I just used run of the mill wood glue and tied it up so that the leg would set.
I've used it with a broken leg for months and since it never even wobbled, a little glue was all I used to fix it.
I then sanded it down just enough to remove any dirt and grease, though it was really quite clean since it was in a store and not the back alley.....then I got my little can of $8 paint and got to work. Three coats and a little sanding to get it looking slightly vintage and voila!

A little sanding in the right spots, and it looks nicely worn and stylish!
I put it back in the hall and does it ever look better than before. I loves it!!
There she is, looking perfect in the hall!
