{The cutest little side-coffee-end table}

You know you have some pretty fabulous friends when they start dumpster diving for you.  :)

When our friend Sara found this curbside, she put it in her car and told me she'd be delivering it soon.  

We got it last night and today, it's already done.

Here's the before...
Super cool design and lines but in need of lots of wood filler and sanding.

And, the after:

 How cool is that?!
And just in case you're thinking we're crazy for painting wood, it was too damaged for us to save.  Plus, I think the white is pretty cool!

We're not totally sure if he was built to be a side table, an end table, or even a coffee table, but we do hope that wherever he lands, he'll be enjoyed.
 Such a great transformation!
Thank you Sara for this great piece!

Such a cutie in our front room!
