Karen found this table skeleton on garbage day and dragged it home. Creative soul that she is, she came up with an unexpected (and free!) solution to make it whole again. We can’t believe we’ve never thought of this one!

From Karen:

We are lucky enough to have a neighbor who is a flooring installer. He had leftover pieces of hardwood flooring. We chose a variety of wood grains and pieces. My husband helped me attach the flooring boards to the table top. I used leftover paint from another project and painted the legs of the table. This was a very affordable fix for a table that was heading to a landfill.

Thank you Karen!
