Practical ... but ugly, my patio setting needed a makeover. I didn't have enough money to buy a new one and couldn't find ready-made cushions in colours that I liked. This required some lateral thinking!
This little stand was quite ugly but had a nice shape and detailing on the base. It had olive green fabric and dark wood, not a look that fitted in with my decor. I gave it a transformation and now it takes pride of place on my bed stand.
I picked up this faded beauty at a garage sale for $20. It was in dire need of a makeover but it was solid and very well made... worth spending time on. It is now a real beauty.
