About 5 yrs ago when I got my home we had nothing and my mom went down the street to a garage sale to buy us a table. It is a huge table but only has four chairs and they were asking $100 but my mom told them it was my bday and I just bought the house and they gave it to her for $50 (wonder why I am frugal?) Well, it has been 5 yrs and the table was yellow and ugly but made with quality and I once tried to hand paint it and that came out ugly. Well I finally completed a "long over due" project.
4 cans of leather brown spray paint $2.97 each
leather look fabric $11.44
table clothe $9.97
Clear plastic to protect table (two kids 2 yrs & 4 yrs.) $3.97
Grand total: $37.26
So this is one of my many frugal attempts of making my house a home. I will post a picture as soon as I get my camera fixed.
