Craig's List Tables

Sometimes I look through Craig's List to see if there's anything I want. I have a whole apartment crammed with furniture but I still like to look. I saw an ad for these two nightstands.

 The top of one (the one on the right) has some bad water damage. I only paid $30.00 for both of these. I am going to use them as end tables in my new living room. At first I thought about painting these white and maybe distressing them but the wood is actually really pretty. It just needs some stain touch ups.
I copied this picture to my files off of flickr. I don't know who it belongs to. Please let me know if you do!

I really like the living room in the picture above. Josh likes dark colors. I don't mind some dark colors but I am more into lighter colors. I really like their white coffee table with the dark leather. 

Last week Sherri gave me an awesome tip on where to buy a cheaper bulb for my OTT lamp. Does anyone know this week how to remove watermarks from wood? I have no clue!

I am linking up with House of Grace for Twice Owned Tuesday!



  1. Removing watermarks from wood: spread on some mayo(yes, MAYONNAISE!) on the circle then let it set for at least 4 hours(or overnight is best Ive heard). After that time period, wipe off. Watermarks should come off!Good luck:)

  2. Great find. I love Craig's List!

  3. what a great find! your living room is lovely!

  4. i still think you should paint them white! :] also, i love your new header!
