While out for a walk with my daughter, I found this little table on the side of a busy road. I carried it back home on top of my little girl’s pram. Yes, I got a few strange looks, but I saw the potential in it’s nice simple shape and perfect size. How could I leave it behind? It was a rusty orange colour, which was OK, but I knew red would make it shine. Two coats of spray paint transformed it into a versatile piece that I can use all over the house.
As you’ve seen from previous posts, I use it as a bed side table. With a thrift store lamp shade and bottles as decoration, it looks great with a matching red cushion on the bed.
As a side table next to the lounge it’s great for holding books and magazines on it’s shelf, and the top surface could hold a lamp, or drinks, snacks etc as seen here. Again, the red looks awesome with the red cushion on the lounge chair.
And here it is in the bathroom, providing extra towel storage, and a great place to rest your Champagne while you’re soaking in the bath. Brilliant! Not bad for a freebie.
