My $12 side table!

No time for witty, entertaining or even wordy in this post. But - I just had to get pictures of this side table that I made up here. It started as this:

I got this old cutting board (I guess) at the Goodwill store. One of the HEAVY items I wrote about a few posts back. Here it is just setting on top of a little plastic table that my kids use.



A few weeks of searching finally turned this up at a different Goodwill. The coolest part? The top turns. Wheeeeee!


Part way through the process - my beautiful, recently re-done cutting-board-turned-table-top ended up like this. Whoops.


But - no worries. Gorilla wood glue did the trick. As did much black paint, some Mod Podge, and an acrylic finishing coat. Voila. I love it. And the top turns. Wheeee!
