Ha! Problem Solved. Anyone Wanna' Go Surfin'? Status: Ready To Be Deployed.
I spotted this table on a craigslist ad Thursday morning and tried to contact the seller but wasn't able to until after I got to work. Luckily, no one else snatched it up before me.
The ad was titled "Marble Coffee Table - $75" and had a decent picture of the
table so I don't know how it lasted more than a few hours. The other "pickers" must
be falling down on the job! Fine by me. I managed to have just enough time Friday
before work, but after the estate sale and unloading Frank the wagon, to stop at
an office downtown just a couple block from work to pick this up! This is just what I
need for parties and company who might not know how to use a coaster!
You see, the Girlfriend had an all girl party last Friday and when I was allowed to
come home afterward I found what had been a cold bottle of wine sitting on my
Wood coffee table Next to (actually Touching but not On!) quite a few coasters
that I (thought I) had strategically placed Everywhere. Wow, really? So there is a
very slight ring left by the bottle. So slight that I bet you couldn't find it without my
pointing it out. That really is beside the point though.
So my first impulse upon acquiring this "marble" (pretty sure it's cultured marble)
top danish coffee table was to simply flip it. Then I got an idea. I can store the Top
under the Thayer Coggin sofa and the base in the laundry room. When we have
"born in a barn" company I can easily pull it out and re-assemble it to replace my
nicer wood coffee table! It's so sad that I am becoming more and more like this.
At least I won't have to put something ugly and incongruous in the place of the
wood coffee table. This is pretty nice! I think it might be another piece of Craft
Associates. I've seen a base like this with a different top. The different top I've
seen has "scalloped" ends and looks less like a surfboard. This might be a
different manufacturer all together, but it looks very similar. I can't seem to find
one using Google Image at the moment. Can anybody help ID this table? Is it
another Adrian Pearsall?
