The Perfect Piece for the Corner in the Dining Room

Pin It
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.
