Cottage End Table Makeover

I found this adorable little end table the other day while out shopping…I immediately loved her, but was wishing I could have found the other one to go with it.  Oh well…I still liked it.  Here she was when I found her – sorry for the horrible lighting and picture - it’s just that my workshop is dark and the lighting is poor.  I should call it the dungeon. Cute old table…excellent dark wood. 
I was sold.
So the before was a little daunting and I know you were thinking “She liked that? ” or perhaps “She’s going to do what to that?” or just simply “Yuck.” 
What do you think now?

You just have to be able to see past what is in
 front of you and look to the possibilities.
I think she met my expectations.

  14. For another, the 2014 Pilot is virtually unchanged from the 2013 model, which, aside from updating and refining some electronic features, was pretty much unchanged from 2012.

    good recommendation on what to have a look for when it comes to buying a used Honda privately.

  15. One of the best sources to get a great deal for a new car or used car is from Car dealers.
    I dont know that this is good news for the used car dealer but
    definitely is a bad news for those who prefer to buy
    new car. uk have a list of questions to ask and things to check before
    buying a used car.
