Lamp Turned Table
Most of you know by now that I love to turn ordinary things into something that they're not. I needed a small oval shaped table for my new breakfast nook and just couldn't find one anywhere. So why not make one, right? I purchased a used oak coffee table a few years ago for 20.00, I didn't like the table so much but I loved the top, it had a great shape to it. (sorry didn't take a before picture of that)
I removed the top, and saved it for who knows what down the road. Well who knows what turned into this perfect sized table for the new kitchen. Only one problem left what was I going to do for the base? Then it hit me, my sister-in law found these neat wood lamps for $2.50 each. I asked her if I could have one because I had a project in mind. The base was solid wood so it was pretty easy to do and with the help of my sweetie we now have a fabulous little table.
The ball feet are wood round balls from the craft store.
I painted it with several colors and highly distressed it to make it look old, then finished it with a low sheen wax to protect it.
I love my my table and we can easily fit 3 around it for dinner, maybe even 4!
