What A Beauty

$10.00 Challenge #1
I love weekends!! They mean yard sales and I love me a good deal!! I picked these two awesome side tables for.... $1.00 each!! I was so excited, I knew they would be perfect in my sister's house. They were a little beat up on the top but they are solid wood and I knew that they were meant to be black!! I snagged them up in the blink of an eye. 

Before:
 


After:
 This was my first ever furniture refinishing project and I must say I think it turned out amazing!!
Just looks at those lines!! I know it looks like we missed some spots, we didn't, I don't know why the pictures look like that!
I can't wait to redo some more furniture!!

Linking up to these great parties!

Great job! I came across a mid-century version of the 2-tier side table at Goodwill for $3 and look forward to putting a few coats of paint on mine very soon ... as soon as I can choose which color/pattern.
