Would You Buy It Wednesday (and my fave find this week!)

I am (re)sharing a purchase from back in May for "Would You Buy It Wednesday" over at Junker Newbie. The first weekend of every month, my most favorite shop in the world is open here in KC: Good JuJu! Located in an old store/warehouse it is literally filled floor to ceiling with incredible vintage finds...some have been upcycled; some are waiting patiently to be transformed. My friend, Betsy, and I have a standing date on the first Friday morning of the month at 9am (the moment Good Juju opens!) and have the best time shopping!

In May I purchased one of the uglier pieces I have ever set eyes on; yet, I just knew it had potential to be fabulous! Take a look at this little table: it was a brownish-yellow resin, with bizarre carvings are over the top and base and for $15 I just HAD to have it.



Disclosure: I didn't realize the base was slightly X-rated until I got it in the car!


Now, here we are after a few coats of simple black spray paint:



Love the feet!

I can't really explain it, but I adore this little table! Would you have bought it?


And my favorite find this week is from GW:



This little beauty was $12.99 and will soon be Kendall's new bedside table. We are kind of making do with an old Bombay Co. table at this point, but she is so excited about this because she can store goodies inside. I am thinking of doing the inside of the table pink, with some leftover "Old White" chalk paint on the outside so I don't have to sand, etc. :)

Happy Wednesday!

I love that table. The black gives it modern edge. Nice finds. Thanks for visiting my blog, and for the compliment.

NO! I most certainly would not have bought that table. : ) But I don't have your eye... I love it now!!!

I don't think I would have bought the table because I didn't see the potential in it that you did. It looks fabulous painted black and makes a great little side table. I'm really loving the piece you found for your daughter's room. I would love to see it when you are finished.

Love the little white table Erin.
Not sure I would have bought the other table, but it is better black.

wow, you really got a nice table at that price. It looks so much nicer now that it's painted. You have a good eye.
