To be honest I don't have before photos. I just grabbed a can and sprayed these bad boys down.
I've looked at the ugly things for 24 years! My parents finally bought new more updated end tables.
Luckily I'm crafty and made a quick job of their new paint. (thank goodness for lunch breaks)
I drop everything here, the paper gets shredded ( shredder behind the table due to the short power cord!)
and any other trash gets tossed. my purse also sits on this table, had to move it for the photo. My husband lovingly let me put one of his lamps here. Ok so I just stole it from the living room. He could really care less. I leave it on, instead of leaving a candle burning in the window or a yellow ribbon on the door. Plus when I come down to feed the cats at 5 am I don't have to blind myself with the regular lamps.
I didn't even move the hardware so if you move one of them you can see the ugly wood tone behind it. all in all I think I did a pretty good job for a lunch break!
Thanks for stopping by!
