We needed a tall table to sit in the corner of two twin beds in my teenage son's new Teenage "Pad". So I got creative with a hamper, a wheel, and a glass top! Sounds scary doesn't it?? But look how easy and well it turned out?

The hamper is a large one that I originally purchased for our master closet but quite frankly, was too large to haul into the laundry room when it was full!!! It has been sitting upstairs storing blankets for ages, but it is the perfect size to become a base for the pub table.
The wheel is one of two that had been sitting in our garage and the glass top is just one of the small round glass tops for small round tables that you can purchase anywhere. The stools are old ones that I painted a distressed black and red stain seat finish. 
 This will be the perfect table for him to take to college eventually but for now is a great addition to his "pad".

Thanks so much for stopping by,
Hugs, Mandy
