I Love Wood...

...because no matter how dinged up, scratched or marked up it is, you can almost always fix the damage with a little sand paper and a few coats of paint. For example, this rather unique side table or nightstand that I found this week. I actually watched one of my parents neighbors walk this out to their trash so I took a deep breath, looked around and rolled down the car window to ask if I could have it. He said yes! And I got a FREE, very old and totally battered table that was covered in Sleeping Beauty stickers (Samantha's favorite thing about the table) and had pieces of the table top chipped away and broken. 

pieces of the wood framing broken off and stickers everywhere!

So, we had a mommy-daughter "painting date," and I let Sammi help me retrofit this table. The result...
The table itself is actually hollow and has two hidden doors in the front for loads of storage. Very cool!
