that's new to me...

I got a couple of fun new-to-me oldies from my neighbor's garage sale this weekend and the sweet  thing was, they were gifted to me. Awesomeness, yes? Now I need to find the perfect resting place for them. I just love their oldness, and it was interesting to learn that the table was built by the man who built our house... it was then passed all through his family and over the years, many of them added a new paint color on top of the last. History in between the crackles, that's what it's all about! And how about that chair/desk? Enough said, right?

That table is fantastic! I have a similar one out in the garage, that I keep telling myself one day I'll refinish it somehow. Paint it red perhaps? Anyways, love yours and the story that goes with it!
