This is the tale about a lonesome table lying in an Ohio flea market booth. While visiting in Ohio, we came upon a local flea market. Once inside, we were hunting the booths until I came upon the top of what looked like a library table. I inquired about the piece and the booth owner directed me to two brown paper grocery bags full of remaining parts for the table. I asked him if all the parts were all there and he told me that he thought so, but it was a gamble. I wish that I had taken a picture then of the bags. Not feeling very confident about the piece and wondering if she could survive surgery and be remade whole once again, I asked about a price. $32.00 was his answer. " I'll take it!"
Once home, the operation of putting the base and legs together was a challenge. The legs were assembled like a puzzle. Thanks to my awesome husband, the job was completed. I don't believe I would have had the patience. This is the pre-paint job.
The hard part was done. Now it was on to the priming and painting.
This humble piece now is one of my most favorite pieces. Life out of a grocery bag...Isn't she a beauty?
