Shortly after we moved to the Seattle area, a co-worker of my husband’s offered to give us “a table” they were no longer using. All I knew was that it was FREE, and that definitely caught my interest! It gave me the courage to drive into Seattle BY MYSELF, and that was a pretty big deal for me!
I have to admit…I wasn’t all that thrilled with it at first sight. In part that was because in my head, I was expecting a dining table…and it wasn’t that! Second, it was super big and chunky, and it had some funky white knobs that I didn’t think looked too great against the wood (photo taken after I removed the knobs).
It took me MONTHS to tackle this project—but when I did, I finally fell in love with this little table!
I used some aqua paint leftover from painting my oldest daughter’s room (75% Belize by SW). Suddenly the table because fun and funky, and the white china knobs (from Japan!) were a perfect fit!
Oh, how I love how paint can transform a piece! This table has two adjustable side shelves, and then those knobs are on large cupboard doors for hidden storage.
I think round tables are so fun—they are so nice to put in a corner and break up a room of “square,” or this could be such a fun nightstand!
