, by Gene Howard, 2 min reading time

Welcome back to our series: DIY On A Dime! This series is designed to help you save money while furnishing and decorating your house. With the prices of construction, supplies, and contractors skyrocketing, we are here to help you stay on budget. We will walk you through the process step-by-step on how you can save thousands by doing the project yourself. In part three of this series we are showing you how you can restore a side table to give it bold character. P.s. scroll below for an awesome deal to save money on your must-have DIY products!

End tables are the perfect touch to any room. Add a lamp, your favorite candle, and whatever decor your heart desires to create a cozy living space... but don't break the bank while doing it. This end table is going for $300. Let us show you how to create your very own for only $92.50 (with a lot of leftover supplies!!!). You could always turn around and sell it to turn your hobby into a side-gig!

Shop the supplies you'll need here to stay on budget:

Additional Supplies:

  • Dresser (You can find a dresser at your local thrift store, an auction, estate/garage sell, re-purpose your old furniture, or even on the side of the road for free!)
  • Use our Mesh Stencil to add any design to your project!

This brings your grand total for supplies to only: $92.50

Keep in mind, this project won't use up all of your supplies! Once you buy them, you will have leftovers to use on other projects, giving you the best bang for your buck.

Step Two
