Summer of thrifty redos-End Table

I am super excited for my first post for Get Your Craft on Tuesday! I have checked out this site for a few months now and love it! Great ideas from some great ladies!

During transition from our old house and new, I started going to thrift shops to look for furniture and house decor. I have collected A LOT of stuff to blog about, but I thought I would start out with this table. We needed a table in the home theater to hold remotes and also to hold drinks. One day while at Goodwill, I spotted this little beauty! As I got closer, my mouth dropped when I saw the sticker and it was only .....$1.99!! I immediately picked it up and made my way to the checkout (I actually made my daughter help me haul it to the front!)

It was missing one of the front knobs, but I knew that I was going to replace those anyway. I loved the quirkiness of the legs and its size. It was perfect. After a little sanding, alot of black laquer spray paint (the top was giving me tons of trouble because it was not looking great) and finally a coat of black chalk board spray paint (because it was what was on hand) and a clear coat...TA DA!

I added some brushed nickle knobs that I found at Wal-Mart. I love the way it turned out.
