From the Curb Find, to my Dining Room

Pin It

Driving home a few weeks ago and being garbage day, look what I found on the curb! I've been looking for a table for under our breakfast bar to use as a serving table. I knew the moment I saw it, it would work. 



There was/is a huge mark, I think something hot was set on it and a paint spots.



With a bit of finger nail polish remover,
the paint came off. 


But, I didn't want to refinished it completely, it had a fold out top table.




So, I decided to pop off the hinges and just turn the table top over
the inside was perfect, not a mark ! 



Then LOTS of cleaning and re-nailing the metal feet on.


IT'S a WOW 



A real WOW

From Curb to My Dining Room



 I've had the metal work up for MONTH's and DIDN'T have to move any of it.
PERFECT FIND !
