Old portable table for crafting….

This table will never be known as a great beauty, but for me it a good addition as a craft table.

The sweet lady I bought it from was in her 90’s. She shared that this table had belonged to her mother. And that she used it as a sewing table as long as she could remember. When I told her that I would use it as a craft table, she was so happy. I could tell she hated to let it go. I paid five dollars for it. The table has a slight bow where her machine sat. Arney got most of the bow out. But it is old and only so much can be done.

Since it is a fold up table, I can put it away when it is not in use. Arney sanded it and I used Linseed Oil as a finish.

As you can see even the part that holds the legs is wood.  DSCN1651


Now I do not have to use my kitchen table or my coffee table to craft on.

Something very old made almost new and useful again.

That was a great find for just $5!! Think of all the things that have been made on that table and all the things you've yet to make on it.

It looks wonderful Puppy. You are really lucky to have found it and I'm gonna guess your wonderful hubby did all the staining. It is going to be so useful. And when done, yea, you can fold it up and put it away until the next project comes along.
