I had the best time redoing these tables over the weekend. These are a pair of early American maple end tables that my Mom bought in about 1976. They were perfect with the LR furniture she got that year. And, they were basically in use in her house until the late 90's when they came to me, first one and then the other. We've been using them as bedside tables since. And, they had seen all the better days they were going to see as early American maple end tables. They are veneer, so not worth refinishing, but they were too cute to discard. And, they hold a lot of family history.
I've been painting furniture lately and walked out of the bathroom the other day and saw the poor table on my side of the bed and I had an idea. I thought about it for a while and then talked to Rob about it and he said okay, but reminded me that he ultimately wants to build us new tables to replace these. I couldn't wait.
So, a trip to home depot and a few hours in the garage and here they are, on their way to a more life as bedside tables.
I am enjoying them very much and they still catch my eye when I go around the corner and see them. Before, they just disappeared. Now, they make a statement against the red bedroom walls.
Y'all take care and have a great Monday. I got lots done over the weekend, so more photos coming soon. But, I'm so far behind reading blogs. I'll catch up as I can. Lane
