I had the stuff below it so that it didn't look so top heavy but didn't really like the clutter. I was reading this post by Cassie at Hi Sugarplum and it hit me! (also, #goals)
We had scrap pieces of square trim and I cut those to size and mounted them across from the inside of the legs.
A couple coats of paint to the additions and I was done.
I styled it with the wooden box thing that I found at a garage sale and a stack of hubby's books. For a while I tried to hide them, now I'm embracing the amounts of books we have. The magnolia flower bookend was here when we bought the house. I spray painted it green years ago.
I just love how much more balanced and sturdy it makes the table look. It was such a quick and easy fix and even though it gives me another surface to dust, just kidding, I won't dust it.. I'm so much happier with this 15+ year old cheapy table now. A shelf was just what it needed.
So what about you? Have you even done a furniture "hack" of any kind? I think this might be a first for me!
Thanks for reading, friends
