Table Love

See this little beauty right here?

Meet the newest addition to our happy little family.

I found rescued her from a garage sale. She was mine for a mere $5.

I love garage sales.

This table is 100 years old, and the minute I heard that I knew, without a doubt, that she was meant to come and live in our over 100 year old house. She’s been painted a few different colors over the years, as you can see through the chips in the white paint, but I don’t mind. I think it adds character.

After bringing this baby home and doing the happy dance (several times), I got to work cleaning her up. I used a bucket filled with soapy water, a sponge, and the hose to scrub her down real good. Once she was scrubbed and rinsed, I left her out in the sun to dry, then welcomed her in the house with open arms.

This little five dollar gal is serving quite a few purposes.

1. Bar

2. Platter storage

3. Herb station

I could not love this $5 find more.

And the great part is that I was on the hunt for something just like this – except that this turned out to be much better than I was hoping for.

And it was only $5. Did I mention that yet?

Happy dance.
