A few weeks ago I was out garage-saling and found these two barrels for $1 each. Of course I snatched them up! The girl asked what I had planned for them? I told her I wasn't sure, but figured that I could use them out in my yard to hold plants, or turn them over to set plants on top... I then realized that they could work as little end tables in the house.
I started by sanding them.
I applied a coat of Pre-Stain.
I stained them with Minwax Provincial.
I'm very happy with the dark color.
I put this wire cloche and birds' nest on top of one of them and it's done. Not a bad table for $1. Now I have to find a place for the other one.
Thanks for your visit!
