1. An amazing table base with a ton of potential
2. White and gray flat paint
3. Plastic table top
It was my birthday on Monday and the present I really wanted was a small table to have at my door to catch the keys, mail, etc. The economy has not been kind to my hubby and me, and we have to watch every penny we put out there.
We were at a favorite haunt when we spied this table. It was an awful brown color and had a terrible piece of cracked black marble on it. It was the base that held my attention. I really felt I could do something with it. I was able to talk the dealer into separating the marble from the base. She felt the value of the table was in the cracked piece of marble. It was my lucky day!
I took the table home and painted it with a combination of gray and white flat paint. The chalky paint finish is perfect for this table.
I was thinking of replacing the marble with glass, but that was way too expensive. I drove over to a local plastics shop and they had this gorgeous pearlized plastic.
Who would have thought plastic could be elegant? The best part, I’ll never lose my keys again . . . hopefully.?
