I found a coffee table at our local thrift store that I thought could use a little fixin' up. I didn't like the price
though- $40! Even the thrift stores in Hawaii are expensive. They are way overpriced, but I guess they can afford to be that way since they have no competition. I've never seen anything in there under $4.00. Anyway, back to the coffee table. I wish I had taken better before pictures, but this will have to do. I was eager to get started. I sanded and primed. I learned some lessons, but then again that is the point- right? I decided to stain the top and paint the rest. I kept the original hardware, but spray painted it with ORB. Here she is first in the garage, then in her new home (my living room).

Lately I've had a fascination with blogs. I've been stalking them daily with great anticipation to see what creations they've come up with overnight. I realize that their creations aren't exactly created in one night, but that is the way it seems in bloggerland. So every morning after I take my kids to school, I find a cozy spot and curl up with my laptop and a Red Bull. It's become a ritual. Start from the bottom and work my way up. You can see a list of them on the right under My Blog List. I should warn you though that you might end up an addict like me. A blog addict, that is. From reading their blogs I've been inspired to turn my own trash into treasure. Hence, the blog and the title. I look forward to this adventure and I hope that I can sell some of my creations in the future. Here goes nothing...
