Louie and I went shopping yesterday for a couple of banquet tables (see below), but of course, we went junkin’ too!
On our last stop, look what they JUST BROUGHT OUT OF THE BACK ROOM!!!! Oh MY GOODNESS!!! A green vintage kitchen table! It took me less than a minute to know that I had to have it.
When we got home, Louie immediately took the legs to his shop to hit them with the chrome polish and buffing wheel. They were kind of dull, but not anymore. There are a few spots where the chrome has bubbled, but overall, it is in good condition, and very sturdy.
It came alone, without any chairs, but that’s ok. I’ll just use my stackable chairs I have been using. There is no extension leaf, but that’s ok too. It’s just the two of us.
I am beyond thrilled at this new table. I always thought it would be nice to find a green vintage table like this, but I had never actively looked for one.
Among some of my other finds, was some fabric. The shoe fabric was bought at the same place the table was. There is 2 yards there. The bags of ‘scrap material’ as stated on the tags, and the pattern were found at the Salvation Army ‘As Is’ store.
I also bought a flannel raggy quilt for $4.38. It’s colors are exactly my own! My silly hubby said I should just use if for ‘Show and Tell’ at quilting and say that I made it! Funny thing is, I think I have some of the very same fabrics downstairs, waiting to made into a raggy quilt. Sigh!
I found a cute kitchen towel to hang on my oven door. Sew cute! I like dresses, I just don’t like to wear them!!
Here is how it looks opened up. It has hook and loop to fasten it closed.
What we got were two white 5’ FOLDING tables. The photo below shows the 6’ table on their website, and the color is slightly darker, but it shows how they fold in half. I was thrilled to see that they folded in half, because they will be so much easier to handle, and store. I like that they are white, because you can lean them up against a white wall, and they are hardly noticeable at all.
Before we came home, we went to see the movie Hope Springs. Louie and I both liked it. Funny thing though, the theater was filled with people our age and older. I only saw one younger couple, and it looked like they were with a set of parents. Lots of couples though. A few groups of ladies. Definitely worth seeing.
It looks like it’s going to be a beautiful day, and I just might end up on the back of our Goldwing!
Have a wonderful day, whatever you do!
