I love my morning walks. Not only are they good for my physical, emotional and mental health… they provide me with the most fun and interesting finds. Remember the two chairs I found on the curb that had been put out for garbage pick up that Dave turned into one good chair.
Well yesterday, I found something that still has me smiling every time I think of it. Look at this treasure that was on the curb about half a block down from us.
We’re not sure what kind of wood but Dave says he’ll have a better idea once he gets it sanded.
If you look closely at the picture above, you can see it has its original casters.
It may look a little care worn and beat up right now but it turns out that all those scratches are only surface scratches. After giving it a thorough once over, Dave says it shouldn’t take long to get it sanded down and refinished.
It is destined to become a new cutting table for my sewing room/office.
When I’m not using it, the drop leafs will remain down. Then when I am using it, I’ll have the option of leaving them down or raising one or both depending what I project I’m working on at the time and the amount of cutting surface I need.
Dave has one final steel wool sanding, then a coat of poly to apply to the desk he and our middle daughter have been refinishing for her and then he can start on the table. I can’t wait!! 🙂
