Fave Find

I've been diligently working on my stash of furniture today. Until the reveal, I wanted to share my favorite weekend find.

I love this plaque. At least plaque is what I saw when I spotted it on the ground at a local flea market.

Now, obviously this was the top of a table. Apparently, everyone who saw it before I got there, saw a top without a table. I saw a plaque with a table fragment that needed to be removed.  Of course I'll find a use for the fragment later.

I paid $10.00 for it. I love the carved detail and the partially stripped finish. I'm going to leave it as is.

A few more finds.

This just makes me smile.

I have a thing for rust.

The tables will be getting a makeover. I'm keeping the detail on top, just not the way you see it here.

Yuck. Complete overhaul. Great potential.

Check back to see what I've been working on, and my vision for the tables.
