I've learned some valuable advice from
It was a magazine with tips from American Pickers.
*Never throw out a price, always allow the seller to start
the price range.
It's so true!
I was shopping at a thrift store.
I knew this seller was flexible.
When I spotted this side table,
I wanted to offer $10.
Instead, I asked "what do you want for this?"
He, like always, points out the obvious qualities.
I didn't even argue!
Very rarely do you find a piece:
1. perfectly solid
paint ready wood
3. cute as can be!
paint one thin, shabby coat of paint
See how it's streaky? I like that!
Next: to cover that stain on the top level.
See the giant ring?
adhesive vinyl stencil
blue tape edges
(Should have centered it, oops. Oh well)
covered white painted diamonds with more vinyl
peel off diamond vinyl covering white
add Tim Hotlz brand number plaque
add long black vinyl strip on front by legs
notice the lovely streaking here on lower level?
Pretty sassy, right?
