My grandma is turning 85 at the end of the month and I wanted to do something special for her. Her favorite flowers are orchids, so when I found these little banged up tables at Goodwill I knew what I wanted to do to them.

Little Tables Transformed!

(by the way, please pardon my stained dirty floors, I live in a rather old apartment  Embarrassed)

I haven't sealed them just yet, I am keeping them out in plain sight for a few days to decide whether I want to fix any details on them or not, but maybe I should just leave them alone rather than run the risk of screwing them up!  Grin

These are great and a wonderful gift for your Grandmother.  A great recon.  The orchids are beautiful!

This is wonderful.  Do all grandmas like orchids?  When I was growing up my grandma had an orchid garden.  She has a smaller one now, but it is harder to keep them alive in Texas than it was in Guam.
Anyways, the tables look fab.

Lovely!  I bet she gets all weepy with joy.
