Found Thifting Around

Was at an estate sale near my house, wasn't supposed to be there, but it was so close by. Didn't find too much that I had to buy, but bought the below. Overall, such an easy project and for now it will go in our loft area, not pictured in.
I covered it with this a remnant that I had to buy at fabric store, not sure what use it I had in mind.
It's a gold metallic vinyl, but like it so. So instead of painting or staining it, I covered it w/the gold vinyl and added the studs.
This piece of wood was $1. but it was so nice. Thought I don't need another piece of wood in my garage, but bought it.
This is a file holder, also at the estate sale, very sturdy, and decided it would be nice little table w/wood on top. Left it as is, nice hammered finished already.

    A good place to overwinter your plants. A waterproof cover and can move it around for more or less sunlight

    I'd love to find a file holder like that--it would be a cool base for a suitcase table.

      @KathrynElizabeth Etier -Well thank you, and you know this was for my daughter for her dorm apt. She decided not to take it and took another of my tables instead. I have since, use the top on a ole sewing machine base and put my printer on it. Now I have the file holder open for another use. I like your idea Kathryn.
