Yes...it was $8 in a local junk/salvage shop.
But it didn't look like this when I got it.
It looked like this:-) So I grabbed the sander and sanded it all down to the bare wood...
Then I stained it with Minwax "Dark Walnut" oil-based stain. I brushed it on with a brush then wiped it off.
Because it was made from two different types of wood, the stain was not as dark on the oak part.
So I painted the "Grand Smoky Mountain" grey that I use on everything on each side section.
When that dried, I sanded it off pretty heavily, then brushed a coat of Colonial Walnut Minwax Wood Sheen over the painted sections and wiped it off.
Then my dad asked if I needed anything from Lowes, so he picked up these glass knobs for me, and that just gave it the bling I wanted.
I love, love, love it! It is just the perfect size...not too tall, not too short and not too large.
Not bad for $8 plus the $14 for the glass knobs! I'm thinking I might go back to this place and see what else I can find!
Thanks to my husband, I have learned how to use my camera, and I cannot believe the difference it has made in photos. Amazing what reading the instructions can do!
