DIY Furniture Makeover
Transforming an Old Table Bought Off Facebook
Transforming old furniture into new is one of my favorite hobbies. I have a home full of old furniture, which I've revamped to look new again. One of the reasons I love refinishing Furniture is because, I love unique, solid wood pieces, with character.
I am not a big fan of new furniture because most furniture today is not even made of real wood... It's made of particle board covered in a thin film that has a wood-like print on it or thin sheets of wood veneer... If you want furniture made out of solid wood, plan on spending big money!
When I'm looking for "new" pieces to add to my home, the first things I look at are; is it real wood, can it be salvaged, and how cheap can I get it? Okay.., do I really need it? Is in there too somewhere...
This table, however, was not for me. It was for my mom. She was looking to get a new coffee table for her house that she had just bought; the brand new table she purchased right before buying this house had already started peeling... We had talked about her desire to get a new table, she even sent me a screenshot of the table she was interested in getting.
About a week or so later I stumbled across this Beauty on a Facebook yard sale group! So not only did I save her a bunch of money, she gets a "new" table with a cute backstory that was refinished with love!
So how much did this project cost? Well, if you had to buy all the supplies for this project it would cost around $96.27. I, however, had everything on hand except for the clear polyurethane, because I had run out on a previous project. So my total investment was less than $20, that sure sounds like a Krazy deal to me!
