The next morning we head off in search of goods to put one together. After a trip around in circles, a couple of surplus stores, the ReStore, and Home Depot, this is what we came up with....
Of course, you guys know me....just a little "quirky" in my taste of goodies;) I love this box!! We paid $20 for it the surplus store.
It's a good thing I am not worried about ruining good furniture;)
We found some hardwood flooring at the ReStore for $2. The electrical set up was looking to be a whopping $50 at the Home Depot, so I set out to find a junk lamp to pull off the electrical set up. Found one for $5.
Prepping for painting.....sprayed the inside light section bright white ($1 at the Depot). The compartment that is covered on the left side there is for drawing supplies, and where the light switch is, along with where the cord can be tucked in when not in use.
We found a piece of plexiglass on the cheap at the surplus store ($8 compared to $16 at the Home Depot). He sprayed it with spray-on frost ($5 at the Depot).
Proud of a very cool project...priceless!!;)
So, for just over $40 I have the coolest light table EVER!!! I have my eye on an old military desk for my new sewing table for when we move into the new apartment next month...who knows what tricks it will learn to do;)
It is our anniversary today, so I will say fare well for the day. The boy is going over to a freinds house for the night and the hubby and I are going for a sunset hike.
