I clipped the last fresh, dewey hydrangea from my new hydrangea plant we planted this summer. I put it in a little short 'n stout mason jar to admire for the next couple weeks. My husband and I went to Ikea this weekend. Well, more like he sat on the entrance couches with a book while I browsed slowy.
I came back with this white candle holder and a head full of ideas & inspiration.
We took a wrong turn on the way back & came across a flea market going on in a Target parking lot. I saw it and yelled turn! turn! turn! Always be looking.. right?
It was $2 for all you could stuff in a bag & as I was stuffing old terracotta pots into my bag, I heard my husband call me over..
He wanted me to look at an old table marked for $15. The seller told him she did not want to haul it back home & told him he could have it for $10. Absolutely! So, we came home with another weekend find. It's funny how these things just find us.
It's a drop leaf oval table circa 1890's or early 1900's and is very solid. I'm thinking the top is original and new legs were added to it down the road? It needs some tender loving care. Right now it's painted in a 90's chalky country blue. I think it was used as a garage table for holding paint cans from the marks on the top. I'm going to fix up this table & put it in my dining room. Our dining room flows into our living room, so this table is a great size for the space.
