Best find in a while!!

My neighbors were cleaning out their garage this past weekend. As I was walking down the street I stopped to chat with them. I had earlier spotted this table and was very curious as to what they were going to do with it. They were getting rid of it and offered it to me for $5. There was no saying no to that. He even put it in his truck and carried it to my house for me. Now, I would guess that this couple is in their fifties, and he said that this had belonged to his mother.

Now, here's the surprise! This is not a table! The top folds back to reveal a desk!

And, then a board pulls out to offer a writing space!

And doesn't she have the prettiest legs?

I can't wait to start in on her makeover. Here is my dilemma, see the little shelves...like paper cubbies. I don't think I will be able to take that apart, so if anyone has any advise as to how I should tackle getting that area clean and repainted I would be extremely grateful!


  1. Oh, I am so jealous! It's so sweet!!

  2. oh my goodness this is beautiful! cant wait to see how you refinish it, but to me it looks great as is! :)
