Transformation Tuesday

On Friday, I shared with you some of my latest garage sale finds. I left you with the challenge of seeing if you could figure out which item I made over for transformation Tuesday.

Do you think you guessed correctly? I've even already sold the piece and made a tidy little profit on it.

If you guessed that I transformed the craftsman style library table then you were correct!
If you remember correctly, this beauty was $20 at a garage sale.  It was in pretty good shape, though it was a little dinged up, scratched and showing it's age.

Here is the after! I know painted furniture is all the rage, but sometimes a piece just needs refinished to it's original glory.

Side by side here is the before and after so that you can compare.

I finished this piece off with Minwax Polyshades in Bombay mahogany that I had leftover from our planked kitchen table redo. I think it turned out beautifully!

And you know what? I'm not the only one who loved this library table. I listed it on offerup and in a few days it was sold for $140 MORE than what I paid for it.  I made a nice little profit for my $20 investment.  I love it when that happens!
Have you made any awesome transformations lately that have put a little extra money in your pocket?  I would love to see them.  You can share them on the Holy Craft Facebook page.
