The cutest Coffee table ever (I'm not kidding)

Miss Mustard Seed
When I first started out as a young adult on my own...I rented a small one bedroom furnished apartment. 
The furniture was a mis-mash of "stuff" I only lived there for a year before moving on to a house with my brand new husband. 
Back then money was VERY tight and I wish I had known I could paint furniture. Ohhh the things I could have done. 
My then husband (now ex) HATED yard sales and boy did I hear about it when I brought something home. 

Oh how life has changed...for the better :) 

Why am I telling you this? 
Well I picked up a table late last summer that reminded me of the early days of my adulthood. 

 I would have KILLED for a table like this. It would have been a perfect fit in our first home...our second, third, fourth.......you get the picture. This would have been a keeper for me for sure.
 It's solid wood and man does it have the "cute" factor. At least in my mind it does. 

 And who does not need a spot to hide the remotes or all those slips of paper that accumulate.
But it was missing something. 
It needed updating. 
And now that I know how..........
Well I couldn't resist. 
And since I'm absolutely loving the whole grey and red thing. What better colours to use?

Red and grey of course :) 
 I didn't change a thing about this table. It didn't need it. 
You know sometimes you just have to change things in order for them to work. This didn't need it.
 Yes I added paint, yes I glazed it...even the hardware was updated...but structurally it was superb!

And now its for sale. 
I no longer have that first apartment, or that first, second, third or fourth home ( I think we are on number 11 now...true story)

Going to go spend a bit of time visiting with my sister now. Maybe we will go junking :)
