Furniture Recycling

Decorating our house on a shoestring budget has been fun, challenging, stressful, and interesting. However, I'm really enjoying developing some new talents and learning some things that if I had an unlimited decorating budget I otherwise wouldn't have learned.

I got these tables at the Kings Christian thrift store for $15 bucks. I was super excited. They aren't really my taste, but we needed some nightstands, and you can't really beat that price. I stained them a dark mahogany.

tables- $15
stain- $4.00
varnish remover- $7.00
labor- me = FREE
polyurethane- FREE (we already had some)

total cost- $26.00 for two nightstands!
