Roadside Rescue Table and Brown Paper


Found this table at the side of the road and decided to have a go at giving it new life.
Took it home and did the old brown paper treatment on it.
Here are the before and after pics.

      @Jane it is the same as is used to wrap parcels or that the grocery store hands out if you ask for paper bags. I got mine at Walmart in the stationary section.

    I got mine which I used on my kitchen floor from HD. Builders grade floor covering laid on new wood floors to protect them during the building process. It comes in a large roll.
