Cutest $5.00 Table Ever!!!

You’ve heard the saying “you snooze, you loose”.  Well…this little gem is result of just that!  
A few days ago, I was at an auction and when this little table came up for bid, no one was paying attention. So, I won the bid at just $5.00.  I had someone approach me as I was carrying it to my truck and ask how much I paid for it.  She was not a happy camper.  I can’t repeat her exact words, but I’m hoping the rest of her day went better!  Anyway, I’m so happy with end result.  I painted the base with my new favorite Pebble Stone color and then used Old White for the top and drawer.  The little knob was left over from a previous project and it’s great to be able to recycle.  The original wooden knob was in really bad shape.  I sanded all the edges and then applied Walnut Ink Antiquing Solution I purchased at Joann’s. It’s so easy to just squirt a little bit on and rub it in with a cloth.  So fast apply and dries quickly.  Gotta love instant results!!!
I wonder what I’ll come across this week?  I’ll be ready for another truck load of treasures soon to restock!  I’m sending my husband out to go do some pick’n while I continue to paint.  I love surprises and he always finds great stuff.
