My DI find!


This is my DARLING DI find. For those of you outside of Utah DI means Deseret Industries, kind of a good will store. People donate stuff they don't want and it provides jobs for the less fortunate. As well as gives us great deals on some really great stuff. Anyhoo, I found this darling table. My sister in law said she saw one just like it in the Anthropology magazine. I got this set for $25!!! Can you believe it? I could have left it black, but i wanted it to pop! So, I sanded it and then spray painted it. And Walla!



The finished project, well, you get the idea. I like how it still has the weathered look, with the black kind of showing through on the little cracks! I still need to set it up on my new porch at my darling new house, but it looks cute in my living room for now!

$25 for the set...
$12 for spray paint.
finished product...priceless!
