Finished Table & Stool

Thankyou so much for all your lovely comments on my finished pieces. I guess thats what keeps me going - all you wonderful people out there in blogland having the same passion and appreciation for beautiful things.
This beautiful table with drop down sides was from that garage sale recently. I painted the legs white and stained the top as the timber was just so beautiful.


This tool box is huge and as soon as I saw it sitting in the junk shop I knew it would make a great piece for the table. Can't wait to fill it with beautiful flowers - for now the pom poms will have to do.
Off to plant some bare rooted roses!!!! have a great weekend and I hope you all make it to a market with lots of great finds.

Love that tool box, how cool. The table looks great (gorgeous roses) and your bedside table looks perfect there (what is that wall colour?)

Dear Sandy...
I cannot believe I had the kind of exact same drop table when i had my shop...(used it as a display table)..
sent it off to auction...OUCH OUCH & MORE OUCH..

If I had one eighth of the furniture..hat boxes...dressmakers dummies..etc when I had my shop..

HEY i would have a FULL shop of ALL my furniture etc...

THAT TOOL BOX is AWESOME...

The darker timber that you are scattering through your home along with the white is giving the area an anchor. It looks terrific and you have done such a good job on it. I so enjoy your finds.

How beautiful! I love your table - it looks fantastic! Now I want an old toolbox like yours. Who would think a toolbox could look so pretty.
Be a sweetie,

The table looks really good! I just love the tool box with the pom poms. I'm thinking of digging one of my old tool boxes out of the attic!

Sandy, boy I wished you lived here in Victoria. Then again maybe not or I'd be flat broke. Your makeovers are fabulous.

I have an oak drop-side table almost the same, except for the legs, that I'm just about to strip. I use Danish Oil applied with a rag; an absolutely beautiful finish.
