One of my favorite D.I. finds. Pretty much ever.

I found a table at D.I., a thrift store.
The second I saw it I knew I needed it.
But even though I knew I needed it, I still hesitated...
A split second.
And another woman swooped in and nearly stole it from me.

Good thing I'm feisty.

Super Feisty.

Guess what I had to do to it to "refinish" it.

Paint? No. Guess again.

Sand? Distress? Nope.

Nothing. I did nothing to it.

I don't know if I have ever bought something at a thrift store and left it exactly as it was.

It needed something above it, so I made the wreath... I copied Kierste HERE. The wreath might have taken a whole 10 minutes to make. Seriously. The only difference was I didn't have a drop cloth, I had some left over fabric from this bench and I only had a styrofoam wreath.
