Target Hack: From Dorm Room to Home Room

I've been looking for a small side table to sit next to our cane chair in our living room.  I originally wanted a ceramic stool like this one here, but they can be a little pricey! 

While on one of my many shopping trips to Target I ran across this hot pink side table in the dorm room section for only $20.  I was going to grab it right then, but I thought about my husband and his input on our home décor and decided to wait...heck it would be there on my next trip.

 
 
When I went back to grab one, to my surprise they were marked down to $17...heck yeah!  I wanted to get "Pinky" home and gold her down like this. 
 
 
The top was just screwed onto the wire base so I removed it instead of using any tape.


I took the wire base outside and sprayed it using my simple spray painting techniques.
 

Voila!






I have something special planned for the top of this table, so look out for that post soon!

Hint:  It rhymes with Sierra....

  3. I just saw this at Target the other day and loved it. It is a little too big for our small living room. Bummer! I hope you enjoy it. I would love it if you would share this over at my link party that is going on right now.
