I acquired an old typing table years ago at the curb and until recently had been using it for a TV stand in my bedroom. However, at the end of the summer, I painted it yellow to add a bright pop for entertaining on my back porch. Since then, I have used it to hold our turkey dinner at Thanksgiving as well! A great find and super fun in YELLOW! While Ikea is a bargain...my curb find gives me pleasure!
Unfortunately, I don't have any before pictures, but just picture it a dingy olive/army green - much better with its update!
