giant film reel

ugly formica!

I bought a giant Smith College film reel from the cool kids at Loot.

I had no idea what I was going to do with it, until I spotted this hideous side table at a tag sale for $5.

Even hubby got excited, and helped me secure the giant film reel to the ugly tag sale table base.  Like so.  It was quite easy.  But the base was still ugly.

so ugly

So I did this, and added glass (also scored at a tag sale), and now look!
