We live in an almost 100 year old Craftsman style home. Sometimes its hard to find just the right piece for a little corner.
A couple of monthes ago I was out shopping and picking for our big show
Remnants of the Past
that is coming up in a couple of weeks. We discovered this little table that was missing half of the top and 1 leg. It aslo looked like it needed some TLC in the repainting department. My handy husband, said "no problem, I'll just put a leg on, and fix the top and repaint it in our favorite paint
Annie Sloan ChalkPaint®."
I was thinking, hmm, do we need another project?
Well, once we got it home, I took another look at it. I said,
"I want this one."
I don't keep much for myself, but this one fits perfectly in my little corner.
We never repainted,
or put on a new leg,
or put the missing half of the top back on.
I love it just the way it is.
And here it is in the corner of my dining room.
It gets used as a place to draw, a favorite homework place and sometimes extra seating when we have dinner guest.
The perfect piece.
