My Sewing Table
This table was left in the open common area of my apartment building, free for anyone to take. The legs were wobbly and the top had obviously been drawn on by a child. A few coats of paint (a primer underneath, Green Apple latex paint on top, and a clear topcoat) and tightening of a few screws, and I had an attractive (and free!) new sewing table!
It was nice on its own, but the boring drawer pulls it came with were easily upgraded with something much more modern and attractive. I did the same thing on my Hemnes nightstands.
