The Finished Garage Sale Table

Hi, friends! For those of you lucky enough to get a 3-day weekend, I hope you've enjoyed the extra day off. If you didn't get a 3rd day to your weekend, you have my sympathies.

It was a very late night last night. (More on that tomorrow.) So, just a quick post from me today. I've got a photo of the finished table, that $5 garage sale table. 

And to refresh your memory, here's the before photo.

I love, love, love the way the table turned out. It's got the vibe I was looking for. I had forgotten how much I enjoy refinishing furniture, a hobby I had when we were first starting out.

Anyway, the project was pretty easy, it cost very little, and I had a good time doing the work.

I'll be back tomorrow!


  1. The table wasn't bad before, but I really like it now. Have you put into use?

    1. Hi Live and Learn,
      Not yet. I'm waiting for the rain season to come to an end. Around my area, we frequently say that summer doesn't really begin until July 5.
      I hope you had a great weekend!

  2. That looks great - well done!

    1. Thank you, Marie! It was a fun project and got me thinking about other pieces of furniture I could spruce up with a little elbow grease.

  3. Really pretty! I love it!
