Wendy at the Shabby Nest is having Frugal Friday Party. Who are we to turn down a party?
I have wanted a drop leaf table coffee table for in my living room for a few years now. I wanted an antique one, but was not willing to pay $100 to $200 bucks to then cut down the legs. I just couldn't do it, and I never found one painted the right color.
I found a table on Craig's List in May for $40 bucks. And it sat in the corner of my dining room until last week. I wasn't sure I really liked it, didn't know what color to paint it, blah, blah. I decided just to go for it and had my husband cut the legs down and then pulled out the wood kindergarten chairs Jenny found a church sales for 7 dollar each. Now it is the perfect place for my kids to play games, eat a snack, or color. I am glad we went for it, now should I paint it. What color, it may take me until next summer to decide. So for my $54, I have a sturdy coffee table my kids can use.
