More trash to treasure

 Not very cute at first glance anyway. I found this on Craigslist for $30. I needed a new small coffee table for downstairs where we watch TV.  My new couch is really big and I didn't want a huge table so this fit perfect.  My basement is mostly classic baseball and defiantly more masculine so this looked perfect. I love the vintage metal casters, and get this it has a white marble top. I love white marble!!  Such a easy project, all I did was paint it white and clean the top real good.  This thing is so heavy and it looks really good. We have already enjoyed a family movie and pizza with it. Oh how I love finding cheap decor that is not only purposeful but decorative and great quality.
 I Found this cute bird print at Tuesday Morning.  I hope one day I can paint something like this. 
 This cabinet used to have doors on it but I got kind of sick of the doors. The bottom was also starting to peel.  I removed the molding on the bottom and just replaced it with a new piece. Now it is a open shelf which I like. See that candle thing on top. I absolutely love using these warmers. I use the end of all my candles, you know when the wick suddenly gets covered with wax or you have a little at the end that won't burn.  I just put it on the candle heater and turn it on.  It smells so good and I don't worry about fires when the kids are downstairs playing.  The melted wax freshener lasts forever it seems. 
 This wood thing used to be a end table that I decoupaged and stained a few years ago. The table was a $1 farm sale find that was to good to leave. I never found a place for it so I threw it in the basement with a pile of things I have no use for but for some reason can't part with. A few weeks ago I was doing some spring cleaning and though I might just donate it but then I saw my small electrical saw. thing I know I'm cutting the legs off.  I figured I could use the table for storage, and I love it.  It is a perfect spot for storing cards, puzzles and small trinkets for the kids to play with. I also added vintage metal label pulls.
 I'm loving my chair, I added this pillow that I already had. 

 Spring wreath, so glad spring seems to be here now. It's so nice to have nights playing outside and baseball practice in warm weather.


  1. Katie,
    Love everything!! Did you flip the marble over one the table? I am trying to figure out how you got the lines to disappear. Will you do a home tour for us? I love your house!

  2. Jackie, that is what it looks like under the marble. I guess I should have said that. When I picked it up it looked like the above though, and then he brought out the beautiful marble. Yes, I will do a home tour but it would have to be after I clean, lol

    1. Oh yes because I am sure your house is filthy!!!!! Now that table was a steal!! I went to a thrift store today. You wouldn't have been impressed
