During a quick conversation with my neighbor, I noticed a drop leaf table out of the corner of my eye. And of course I had to ask why it was sitting out there? She tells me there is a little water damage and she was getting rid of it.
Here is where my brain started racing...
No, I don't need a table
No, I don't have room to store it in the garage
Hmm, Maybe I can put it in the basement and eventually find space for it
It has great bones, and only needs refinishing, I am sure I can find a use for it
And finally, I say...How much would you like for it? Free, no really, I can give you something for it. Really, you are just taking it to the dump? I can use it.
So I brought it home.
I currently have it set up in our dining room. It is a great size and we could use a larger table for Thanksgiving.
I don't know if I will keep it forever, or use it in the basement. I don't even know what I am going to do to it, except to get it sanded and primed. Quite possibly tonight.
Please remember to enter the October give-away- I pick the winner this Sunday, 10/23.
