We have two simple black bistro tables that used to live in our master bedroom as "temporary" night stands. But, earlier this year we purchased actual night stands. So, after 7 years (you read that right) in our bedroom, the black bistro tables became homeless. I considered selling them in a garage sale we had, but then I thought they could be useful somewhere else in our home. So, I held onto them and they bounced around from room to room until inspiration hit.
The windows in our living room face a bare and boring small side yard with a glorious view of a brick fence. It's just as lovely as I'm sure you are imagining it. We plan on planting a couple fruit trees over there eventually, but the space could use some color regardless. So, I decided to give one of the bistro tables a makeover so that it could live in our side yard outside our living room as... wait for it... a bistro table! Original, I know!
The process couldn't be easier and this makeover cost less than $20!! But, before I get too carried away, here are the before and after pictures.
Don't you just love it? It makes me so incredibly happy to see this bright and fun table outside the window! I carried the colors from our living room outside so that it would be a natural extension of the room. I am seriously smitten with it.
