The last time we shared something worse for wear, we discussed how our welded steel dining table has fared the past year. Overall, not too bad. Just a few scratches, but nothing a can or two of white spray paint can’t fix. Unfortunately, not every piece of furniture can be fixed as easily. Take our living room end tables for example. They used to look alright, considering they were $15 Target clearance tables with laminate tops.
When I bought the tables two years ago, I bought them mostly for the price and the steel bases. The laminate tops, not so much.
Laminate is super cheap and peels off easily. Specifically, Vincent peels it off easily. And, he puts stickers on everything. Chairs, cabinets, tables, you name it, it has a sticker on it.
We’ll have to find the time to make new tops, whether wood, marble, or granite. I’d like to paint the legs to complete the new look, too.
What piece of furniture have you purchased, only for it to fall apart? Something from Ikea? Something from a high-end furniture store?
