Curb finds

My hubby picked up these pieces on the way home from work one day last week -- he knows how to spot them! Some great curb finds. They will likely sit in our garage for the moment until we find inspiration...any ideas?
This coffee table is very similar in shape to the one we converted to a bench for our master bedroom, but is not quite as tall (and therefore not comfortable sitting height). I will have to put my thinking cap on for how to handle this one...

Maybe I could transform it with gold legs and a white top...


via - I would rough it up quite a bit more than this one...

Or maybe I could rough up the top service and wax it, paint the legs white like this:

Here is the second piece:
This is a cool art-deco style wooden chest of drawers...would be a perfect night table, or storage in a bathroom (if only my bathroom were that big)...now to determine the best way to highlight the wood work on each of the drawers!

Happy Monday  - here's wishing everyone a happy,quick, and productive week!

I think that coffee table is gonna be fabulous!

What did you think of "Secret Daughter"? I thought I might find it a bit slow and instead I just loved it! You?

Great curb finds! Definitely nothing like that on the curb around here.

These are great! And I'm happy there are others out there who are so-called "garbage-pickers" like me! People throw out the greatest stuff!

Great curbside finds :-) When you've worked your magic on these pieces, let me know - I'd love to feature them in my new Fab Furniture Friday blog series :-)

I'm actually about to go thrifting now. Hope to find some goodies!

I am so impressed with your husband! There are a million things you could do with the coffee table. Looking forward to seeing what you choose.
