It was out at the curb, and she figured I could make one of those Pinterest Lego tables with it.
After eyeballing it for a bit, I decided I was too lazy.
I was going to just paint it, but I thought maybe that would be too boring.
I wanted to do something that would make it stand out a bit, and yet still be functional as an all-purpose end table.
I had picked up some maps from a flea market, and after looking through them, I decided to go with an interesting map of Mount Everest. I loved all the blues and greys, and thought it would go well with the Annie Sloan Paris Grey I used to paint the table.
After decoupaging, I still thought it needed a little something. Something for the top.
"Explore" with an arrow built into the word would be just the thing. I painted that in black and was finally pleased.
The only work that remained was to distress it with my orbital sander, and then add a coat of clear wax.
All done. I like it!
