At Mimi’s Attic, we see a lot of tables. Dining tables, coffee tables, high tops, pedestals- there’s a table for everything, and we’ve got them all. But if there’s anything more diverse than our table collection, it’s our customer base. Mimi’s customers are so interesting and creative, that they even invent NEW kinds of tables! This week, two of our mastermind customers undertook awesome projects to make Mimi’s-found tables their own.
The first table fable comes from one of Mimi’s favorite regular customers. Our friend Meryl found this funky little $10 side table at Mimi’s and completely re imagined it! Now outfitted with a zesty coat of paint, Lego mats, and storage bins, it’s a one-of-a-kind play table for her kids! Seriously, this is genius. Meryl, you are just too cool for school. With this new play area, those kids are bound to grow up as remarkably creative as you!
Next, the award for most ambitious DIY master of the week goes to…… Tatiana!! She took on not one, not even two, but THREE projects that started with Mimi’s Attic finds. One of these projects was inspired by a problem many people have when shopping second-hand: it’s hard to find matching items. But matching is… well, it’s not an exact science. Tatiana found two side tables that were completely different in color and structure, but both had a bit of French Provincial flair. An unlikely match at first, but if they went out for coffee, they’d have loads to talk about. After this fancy little paint job, its clear they were meant to be together!
With this last one, I don’t mean to brag here… but we totally called it. Tatiana took this industrial trunk and made a totally hip, unique coffee table!! She added cute little legs and some popping blue paint to give this shabby looking trunk a complete makeover. It looks like it fits perfectly in your chic, eclectic living room. You have such a sharp eye for design, Tatiana!
Here at Mimi’s we are endlessly grateful that our customers are so wonderful. Many thanks to Tatiana and Meryl for sharing their bold, crafty spirit with all of us!
