This one just makes me giddy. That table is a solid walnut, antique, Duncan Pfyffe knock-off, with filigree edge and brass toe-caps on the tri-corn legs. The filigree is broken a little in the back- but it doesn’t bother me at all. It was marked fifty cents. Yes, that’s right. FIFTY CENTS. I asked the lady if that was right- actually, what I said was “This can’t be right, can it?” and she said sure, it was damaged. I slapped down my two quarters and ran to the car.
The wingback chair is also a thrift store find, $5.00. Yes, I ran with that one too. And its matching partner, which lives on the other side of the fireplace. I have a bolt of natural linen that I plan on making them slipcovers- and eventually I’ll get around to it. Won’t they be darling in linen slipcovers? The orange doesn’t do it for me, but hello!? FIVE bucks each? Thank you very much!

But YOU put all that cute stuff on the table and made it look awesome. In my house, it would look like a broken table worth fifty cents.
Beautiful table! I can’t wait to see the chairs recovered in linen. You have such a great eye!
Wiz, even with nothing on it, it looks like it’s worth at LEAST a buck.
Woo hoo–you win!!
These are the moments garage sale junkies live for! Lovely. And Wiz is right you make everything look great.
