Useful Art: Breathing New Life into an Old Ugly Thing

Do you have a piece of pesky furniture that is kinda cruddy and drives you crazy?  I did.  I have this little table that has moved around from one apartment to another, always not quite fitting in.   It was pretty beat up and was quite often considered for garbage, but it was always the perfect table for a plant, or some such thing.  It also belonged to my grandmother, and while I don’t typically have sentimental attachment to things like furniture, I just always hung on to this thing.   It had been long enough and I was tired of it’s creepy brown color and odd stains.  I decided to make it something much more enjoyable to look at.    Sometimes, an old ugly thing can have a little more life to breathe if just given the chance.  Think twice, and make something funky out of an old something lying around your house, come on!
