I have a thing for spool tables. They pack so much stylish punch into a tiny space.
I found my new spool table at my favorite thrift store. Only it looked like this when I found it.
I was smitten at first glance. Oh the curves and the delicate etching on the table top. And it's only $8.
Nevermind the repulsed looks of other customers as I haul it to the cash register. People, can't you see POTENTIAL?
It rolled around in the back of my car for two weeks while I tried to decide what color to paint it. Go for a modern white? A funky green? Then I saw this spool table in Crate and Barrel.
The price? $229!
But I was sold on the color. I gave my $8 tarnished table a good rubbing with 0000 steel wool and a couple of coats of oil rubbed bronze spray paint.
Isn't she a beauty now?
