Welcome once again to Transformation Thursday! It's the one day of the week we all get together to celebrate getting stuff done. No matter if you've been coming around for quite a while or this is your first time, everyone is welcome to share their projects, big or small. Just link up at the bottom of this post. A couple of years ago I bought a luggage rack at a yard sale for $1, and realized it was the perfect size for a side table. For two years I had a piece of scrap wood on top of it, covered by a table cloth. Not any more. Lately I’m craving simplicity. Simple decor – simple lines – unfrilled. I know I’m not the only one in blogland with this yearning – but you probably already knew that. With the purchase of my new sofa, I really wanted to freshen up my side table, too. I found a couple of boards I had already painted (for a long abandoned project), and a piece of scrap wood. I put the two painted pieces together, good side down, then put the scrap piece on top. Mark around it first, before you start drilling. You can peep to see if your drill went all the way through. If it didn’t all your other holes will still line up. Predrilling the holes means that you won’t worry about splitting the wood, k? I attached the boards with six screws, three attached to each side. After it was all attached together, I put the luggage rack on top (which I guess is technically the bottom), and attached the luggage rack.You predrilled that hole too, right? Flip ‘er over and she’s done. Since my boards were pre-painted, the whole she-bang took about 5 minutes. Easy, eh?
Oh! And before you make a run for it, be sure to sign up for the Red Letter Words Giveaway!
