I have been picking up needy furniture at auctions and such when no one else wants them. Much to my husband's consternation I am starting to accumulate projects...yikes! Anyway, I picked up this sad little table complete with swashbuckling pirate's chest ornamentation for a buck. All I knew was that it was very heavy for it's size and had "good bones". A LOT of elbow grease and a can of sparvarnish later and ...wow...total overall cost...$3
I found the "twisty stick" and my husband installed it.
Another "rescue"...very dated so I tried some whimsical color to see if I could change it's attitude. Not shown here but I did put casters on it too...Now it's a rolling tv stand and drawers for sewing supplies...
Got one of those little rolling tables...usually have white bottoms and oak top. This one had a leaf that folded out and came with a couple of those matching stools. I guess I didn't take any before shots, I removed the leaf and foldout leg. Replaced drawer pulls and used some creative spray paint that mimics copper. Spiffed up the stools too, just sold them at auction. The table now holds my master tv. The oak leaf? Set aside for another day.
