So What DID I Pick Up Saturday At The Local Thifts? I Just BARELY Got This Matched Set Of Retro Living Room Table Shot This Afternoon Before...Rain! It Is Finally Raining Again In The Mid West! Status: Moist.
Rain we needed but it just came at the wrong time of day...at least for me! It was my own fault. I had all day to get out, clean these up and shoot some pictures. I was just too lazy to get out when it was dry. It's easy to get complacent when it hasn't rained in weeks and you feel like you have forever to get things done.
A matching coffee table would be nice, but not everybody uses or needs a coffee table..right?
Not everybody has the room for one either. When you're pickin' at the thrifts you don't get to be
choosey! Still, I felt pretty lucky to have found these before they got snatched up by another lucky
buyer! As a matter of fact, they were getting the "once over" while we were paying for them!
Even after a lot of much needed cleanup, they both have some finish issues. I'm kind of on the
fence as to what to do here. If I go down the refinish path it's gonna require full on sanding
down to raw wood to do it right. I'm not sure I'd ever finish it up if I do that. I though about
cleaning up the finish real nice as is and painting the the damaged checks in a checker board
fashion. That wouldn't be too hard and would probably look great! Or, I might just stick them
in the Booth Space (44) at the Green Shag as is and let the next adventurous owner make
