I’ve been quite a busy little bee the last few days, and I have a lot of little tid bits to share, but I didn’t want this project to get lost in the shuffle, so I thought it deserved it’s own post. The story begins a long, long time ago (I do believe it was in October, if my steel trap memory serves me correctly, and it usually does.) 😉 Cara picked up this sad little table with a spinning top at a yard sale for a buck or two. It’s been sitting in my workshop ever since waiting for inspiration to strike (and collecting lots of dust.)
Then, last month, a wonderful family took home the French Drop Leaf Dining Set. Christine told me she had a couple of chairs that they didn’t need any more and I was welcome to have them. As you all know, I almost never turn down free. 🙂 So I brought home this pair of chairs.
I know, I know. That’s only one chair. It has a twin. 😉 I thought the chairs modern shape work fantastically with the game table. There’s a phenomenon that happens with me sometimes, that the less I spend initially on furniture, the wilder and less inhibited I feel with the makeovers. Since I paid a big fat nothin’ for these pieces, I threw caution to the wind!! Here’s what I came up with:
I just love that the top rotates! So fun! I cut out 2 inch squares of some orange paper that I had and mod podged them on the game table top. I still need to put some poly over the top, but I just couldn’t wait to share. 🙂 Checkers anyone?
P.S. – I’ll be back a little later with a post summarizing all the pieces I have ready to go at the moment with prices. I have limited transportation space for the Junkrestore Vintage Market in Scottsdale. We’ll be loading up the truck this evening and I’ll be heading down to set up tomorrow. If there are any pieces that anyone has particular interest in, please let me know so I can make sure it makes the cut as to what’s going on the truck. 🙂
