DIY Target Table Redesign & A Promo Code

Does anyone else just love Target
Wait, dumb question.
We all do (I think)... except for when they messed with our credit cards, but ok, I forgive them! 


I could get lost in the "halls" of target for an entire day...
Well maybe that's an exxageration... but you know what I mean! 


So one day LAST YEAR I came across a wirey looking table just like it.
And the price tag said $9.99 so I couldn't pass it up.

I had seem another blogger do a restyle to this table and thought... hmmm... I could do that... Of course, now, a year later, I can't find that picture so just trust me on it!  ;)  But I did fall in love with a table that Sarah M Dorsey Designs had done that was kind of simlar...



 
I honestly can't remember what the wirey part was originally colored... this is what happens when you have so many projects going on in real life and in your head.  I believe I immediately sprayed it this gold. 




And you might notice the top was a little messy, but I didn't care because I was going to cover that up.




With this lovely piece of $10 round that I found at Lowes
It's got a good weight to it which helps keep the table in it's place and make it feel more supstansial! 



So I took it outside and stained the top...
(This only shows the edges stained)




And we used wood glue with a little Gorilla Glue to stick the two together...




And voila! 
A nice new, $20ish side table that is unique and different.




It's perfect for my coffee, the stain is different from the wood floors, and the gold gives it a little pop! 


Also, do you like my candle holders turned vase?!  Yea...  I got bored one day last week and felt like I needed some color and greens and this is what I came up with! 



So there you have it!
An easy ReStyled Dorm Table turned Sophistocated Chic!


And since we are talking makeovers of dorm furniture, why not talk back to school!

Love what you did. I'm really loving metalics and wood together these days too! Great idea with the candle holder too. ;)
