My Find!!

I always read where people find this great stuff at their local thrift shops.  I never in a million years thought it would happen to me!!  Me, of all people.  I scourer those places and find nothing.

Can't say that anymore,  just look what I found.  After down sizing we needed a new dining table.  The price for not so nice stuff is staggering.  While, just browsing our local thrift store (not looking for a table)  I spotted what looked like it just might be something worth taking a further look at.  I could see what looked like wood, peaking out from under a pile of clothes and other stuff. 
Just look what we found, and the price with 4 chairs was way less then $100.00.

Many questions, ran through my mind. Is this really wood?  Would it refinish?
We took a chance, thinking it just might be wood.  Took it to the shop and started to work.
This is how she turned out.  She is everything I needed, as I needed a table 5ft.
I wanted wood!  I wanted something that would look good.  I think I have it all!!

    1. I wish we had the chairs that went with table, somehow they got separated. I will continue to search for the correct chairs.

  4. Beautiful table. I think it is lovely that you can sit and eat at a table that you finished with your own hands. What a beautiful job you did! I know this is a lot of hard work. Applause for you and hubby!
