surfboard table

 marty and i moved into a new apartment - which should explain the recent choosing change silence as i have been working on putting together our new home. in an attempt to disguise the fact that the bulk of our furniture consists of hand-me-downs, items from my parent's basement and thrift store finds, i've been scouring blogs and hardware stores for repurposing ideas. marty and i both love mid-century modern anything (how original, i know), so that's where we've focused our attention. one of the first amazing pieces i found was this surfboard table at a thrift store for $30 - the catch, of course, being that whoever owned it had covered it with sticky contact paper to hide water rings, burns marks and who knows what else. so, marty sanded it down, we stained it a gorgeous chocolate brown and [in my opinion] we restored it to its former glory!
