Oh, My! Table


This would be the new (to me) table I picked up over the weekend for (get this) $50. It's solid wood (walnut, I believe,) antique, and just beautiful (that's Ruthie holding it down!) It also has like 5 leafs, as well, but don't need those right now, as it fits perfectly in our new place, just like it is!

You're wondering what the catch is. The catch is, I have to refinish it (which I would have done with any table I got anyways.) Apparently, the lady who owned it had a plastic cover on it to "protect" it. I guess after 60 plus years of "protection" this is what you get. The plastic, from what I can tell, disintegrated, and stuck to the wood, creating this whole fabulous look....




Yeah......yuck! It looks even more attractive in person (read: sarcasm!) I haven't completely decided on finishes yet, I was just super excited about the find (I've been looking pretty hardcore,) and wanted to share the joy! I, of course, will share the pics as I start the process of making it mine! Can't wait!
