I found this adorable mid-century side table in a dumpster this weekend! Some unfortunate soul spray painted it bright red with patches of white peaking through from underneath. And spray painted the legs brown, too. I snatched it from the trash and sanded off a little bit of the paint to reveal nicely grained wood underneath - score!
Today I went to the hardware store for various sandpapers and supplies to refurbish the table and restore it's natural beauty. As of right now it's about 50% sanded and looking great... more photos to come!
