Trash to Treasure

One person's trash is another person's treasure..................this make over of my stamp room or really addition to... started when I saw the stamp room make over in the Stampin Success magazine that we demonstrators get each month. I saw a really cute drop leaf table in it and I fell in love with it.  

When I went to Leadership in January they showed the video and I was so hooked.  I had to have a table so when I came back from Leadership I looked on Craigs list and found a drop leaf table for $20.00  can you believe it?  Then I needed some chairs to go on either side, so on the way home the following week I stop by Goodwill and out front they had 5 chairs lined up by the door.  I looked closer and you will not believe how much they cost!!!!  $.99 yes you see it right 99 cents each............ wow I can not believe my luck.  

Below is the before the pictures  (on the seat you will see a little white vase sort of thing with my favorite color aqua on the inside (.50) I am putting my business cards in them. I will take a picture later.

Chair after paint. I need to give it a second  coat.

This is the table that was already painted sort of a mint green although it looks like yellow here.  Don't you love it. 

Below are my friends Nancy and Mary at one of my classes.

I love that I can use the table leaf up or down.   So that is my trash to treasure. Hope you like it as much as I do.  Thanks for looking and letting me share my life with you.
