I know that there are people who won't sink to picking things out of the trash, but I'm not one of them! Yesterday, I went south on our road instead of north (which is my normal route) and saw this little table sitting at the curb under a tree. It had obviously been there a few days -- water from the recent rains had pooled on the top and the veneer on the cutwork sides (what was left of them) was all separated.
It's nice and heavy and has good old bones, though. It just needs a little love. . . okay, and a little veneer -- and cutwork added to the sides -- and paint -- or stripper and stain and varnish. I'll post pictures when I'm finished working on it!
