Making Do

As I posted on my instagram yesterday - I wanted to share a fun project I started one way and finished another.

2 weeks ago I went into a thrift store and found a sweet side table that was nice and sturdy and only 10.00 - the bones were good and I knew it just needed some paint. Fast forward to DIY day...

SO... I started sanding and was super excited to get painting when my husband pointed out
that there was a drawer missing...

OMG - I didn't even notice that. Great now what - I proceeded painting the table and kept it in my mind wondering what I could do with the small space there - It wouldn't sell with that gap so
we added a dowel and painted it the same color and added a small guest towel and wahh laaa...
A useful table that would work out well in a guest room along with the cute towel...
Pure sweetness wouldn't you agree?

I love when I make mistakes that actually turn out better then expected.
I am linking this up to the parties posted in my tab above.
Here's to making "HAPPY" mistakes.
