Thirty dollars









To some apparently this looks like garbage , to me this is a dream table , you don't get legs like that any more , apparently it is oak , and it is in need of obvious repair , and lots of tlc and only cost me $30.00 , If you recall we used legs from a table so similar to this one to create legs for the bathroom vanity and for my kitchen desk , you can see those creations here.
Stay tuned for my little makeover, I will refrain for now and get back to painting my fence only about 100 linear feet to go , yippy , can you feel my pain ?

The curved skirt has Possibilities too - a great find.

It's just amazing what you can stuff in a car. Once, I put a dresser in the back seat of my BMW. My sons were horrified but I couldn't pass it up. Now that table it's a beauty. Are you going to paint it?

That would make an amazing demi-lune table. I can't wait to see what you do with it.

I noticed on your sidebar that you do not use oil-based paints for the most part. Did you use them on your kitchen cabinets?

When you said 'paint the fence', I immediately thought of Tom Sawyer.

I've brought home many treasures like yours over the years. My husband, the dear man that he is, doesn't even ask me what I'm going to do with them anymore. $30 for such a fabulous piece? What a deal!
