2nd Time Around Table

This table is probably on its 6th or 7th time around. I found this table in my grandmother's chicken coop before I got married (over 40 years ago). She had used this in her home many years before that and it had been relagated to the chicken coop. I took it home and gave it a coat of avocado colored paint and antiqued it (do any of you remember that color??). In the 80's I tried to take the table back to the original wood but it couldn't happen without having it "dipped" so I didn't do that and instead painted it a dark forest green. My daughter was married in the early 90's and needed a kitchen table so she took it. It remained with her until about 6 years ago. It has been sitting up in a storage loft in our garage since then. I had DH haul it down and we painted it back to its original white and did some antiquing on it. It is now back on the sunporch for more years of use. It is indeed a sturdy little table with no broken legs or very big dings in it for its years and years of service. It's a precious treasure to me because of its history in my family.

Truly a treasure! Especially when it belonged to Grandma...I love posts with sweet "memories" stories!

I cannot believe I took one to the local consignment shop last year! I'm wanting it back so bad!

Oh how cute and what a story. I would say it is a treasure. I love the white.
Thanks for sharing.
Have a great evening,
