So, once upon a time, there was this table. I picked it up from Freecycle and embarrassing number of months ago (I think it was actually back in October, of last year) and it just sat in our garage. I kept telling myself that if I had a palm sander, I would refinish it, but I just couldn't seem to find someone to borrow one from or a good one to buy on Craigslist. Finally, however, I found a brand new sander on Craigslist for $20 and decided it was finally time to refinish this table.
It was a kid's art table before I got my hands on it, and it was in rough condition. It took a lot of work and sanding (which was strangely satisfying, to be perfectly honest) but I managed to sand it down and sand out the bumps and, finally, refinish it. (I did have help in the final stages, I must add. Not to leave Geoff out)
And so, this refinished, refurbished art table, ready to "retire to a family room, living room or den," as the ad says, is for sale on Craigslist. Considering it was free, and the materials cost about $30 (after you add in the sander), I'd be happy even if we only broke even, especially since I will use the sander again. I already have another project lined up!
What do you think?
