Here’s the tale of my new “farmhouse” table! I’m part of a mom group on Facebook that has a few buying/selling/trading forums. Recently, one of the ladies on there posted an album of furniture and other items of her uncle’s. I checked out the post and found this awesome enamel-topped table. It would fit perfectly in an old farmhouse kitchen! For now though it is going to be my new craft table because it has two pullout leaves that will be perfect for expanding the table if need be. When my husband returned home from picking it up I was ecstatic to find out the seller reduced the price from $30 to $20 upon pickup (probably because they thought parts of the table were rusty!). Good news for us the “rust” wiped right off with a good baby wipe scrub! The handkerchief detail on the top only makes it that more special.

At the risk of jeopardizing my chances of getting a good deal (just kidding) I might add that this weekend we also picked up an oak table (with 2 stored in table leaves) and 6 farmhouse style chairs for FREE! It just so happened to be my second grade teacher standing on the other side of the door as well. Pretty cool! Craigslist, I heart you!
