Look what my mom brought over yesterday! This adorable little table belonged to my Danish great grandparents. It has been sitting neglected in my grandparents' basement for the last 20 or 30 years. I think it even spent some time in Grandpa's garage/workshop. It's filthy, and desperately needs refinishing. But it's just so cute! I don't know yet what I want to do with it. Which is ok, because I have way to many painting projects right now. It will probably eventually be painted, because stripping stain is just too much work. Any ideas? My mom felt really bad that I didn't get the china cabinet, so she immediately claimed this little table for me. I love gate-leg-style tables. They are so conveniently sized. My mom used to have one that was eight feet long, but with the leaves and all put away it collapsed to two feet long.
