I know a lot of people in the junkin/antique business and we often buy from each other. A couple of years ago I bought a few furniture pieces from a fellow junker and she threw in this table for free...
It was missing its top and the doors. It was also missing a piece of molding on the front of the drawer. I tried to remove the rest of the molding to no avail. So, I decided to embrace it...I'm not perfect either!
I painted the table with a bold yellow called Colonel Mustard.
I love gray & yellow together, so I painted the inside of the table with a light gray called, Driftwood.
The Dixie Belle Paint Company has a beautiful new gray wax called, Grunge Gray, and I'm in love!
I added the wax to the table with a wax brush, then wiped it down with a rag.
I filled the drawer with heavy duty plastic and stapled it down.
Then I trimmed the excess plastic.
I added pallet wood to cover the staples and give the top a finished look.
I added a layer of pebbles for drainage.
I filled the drawer with dirt then planted succulents.
I always knew I wanted to make this freebie some type of planter. And, even though it sat undone for a couple of years, I think it was worth the wait!
