Don’t you just love Target clearance! It’s the best! I just happened to be there a day this summer when they must have just marked down a lot of summer decor items. I did show some restraint, but this wicker basket (and a few other things) did come home with me. I knew it could make a great summertime end table in the living room!
I really needed a small table for beside the sofa. I like to sit there at night and read, so I needed a table for a lamp.
This basket turned upside down formed the base for a small wicker table.
I used wood I had on hand to make the top. Mark cut two boards to size and used the Krig Jig to join the two pieces of wood together. I stained the wood with a custom mixture of Rustoleum Weathered Gray and Minwax Provincial.
Then for some detail – I purchased these simple brass brackets for a couple dollars at Lowe’s and attached one to each corner. I am really liking the look of brass with gray lately!
When you are looking for a piece of accent furniture, don’t forget to look at unconventional pieces AND always check the Target clearance aisles!
