Super Side Tables

Don't you love these Mid-Century side tables? I've been seeing a lot of them around lately.

I've heard them called "Step Tables" They are so versatile, they can work in almost any room of the home, living room, bedroom etc. You can leave them the original wood or paint them up!

My friend Stephanie found this awesome table at the Goodwill and gave it a new life with some paint and tape. !!LOVE!!

My Mom (Hi Mom!) found a pair for $10 each and gave them a fresh coat of paint. She uses them in two different rooms in her home.

And I rescued  a pair from the side of the road and stenciled a pattern on them:

So if you happen to come across one of these little guys don't pass them up! Give them a new home, they will really appreciate it.

The stencil pattern on your tables makes them look very mod & fashionable, a true vintage find!

My grandmother had tables like these in her house. I'd die for them now!

My mom had tables like this in our house when I was growing up. I have no idea what happened to them...I wish I knew. Thanks for a great post...I love what you did to yours!
Happy Easter...~Ann

I have been seeing TONs these at thrift stores. They're so compact and useful. Now I'm kicking myself for passing on the $24 solid wood pair that I saw a month ago. Ahhh, oh well.

I had one of those in college, but it never occurred to me to make it attractive!!!

Yes, I see these in just about every estate sale I go to...if I had the room, I'd be snatching a couple up to paint and maybe stencil myself.
