Tiffany loves thrift shopping and regularly brings home furniture that’s seen better days. This $5 table looked a little worse for wear, but nothing that a couple of coats of white paint couldn’t fix. When disaster struck, the tabletop veneer got ruined, and Tiffany was forced to find a new solution….

Since the top wasn’t salvageable, Tiffany made an entirely new one! Using small pieces of wood, she constructed a detailed herringbone pattern which she glued down and framed in. After sanding and sealing it, Tiffany has a new bedroom vanity table.

Tiffany has details and photos over on her blog, so check it out if you’d like to make one yourself.

And nice project Tiffany— we’re so glad you shared it!
