For months I've been searching for a rectangular coffee table. Each week at the garage sales I hope that today will be my lucky day. I even put out a wanted ad on Freecycle but to no avail. I hate my oval coffee table and it was driving me nuts then last Wednesday I had a light bulb moment. My new coffee table was sitting in the shed and had been for months. Lucy and I found a sturdy wooden toybox at a garage sale for$10 and I got it for Lucy. Lucy’s not real happy that I've taken it but I figure my need is greater than hers.
Perfect, so today I gave it several coats of paint and stained the top. It also has good storage space for our throw rugs and other bits and pieces. I will finish it off tomorrow with two or three more coats and two more on the lid.
I promised Tony I would get some of my stuff out of his shed as it’s a bit cramped at the moment lol I'm not going to any more garage sales until I've gotten the rest of the furniture out. I had a fairly productive day. The little table which I paid $5 for at Salvo’s needs one more coat and it can come inside tomorrow. I finally managed to get my frames painted, I have had these for years, hopefully will get them hung tomorrow.
Anyway better go back to work tomorrow.
Bye for now
