Sorry to keep you in suspenders!
So I have been chuckling away to myself all day.
Bagpipes, hair curlers, marvellous.
Let’s take another look at what you had to work with:
What you are actually looking at is:
The bottom half of this table’s legs!
Dave did the deed last night for me.
I bought this old kitchen table in Fürth, Germany,
when I lived there back in the 80’s.
It went to California with us,
came back to England with us,
and was the centre-stage of our family home for over 20 years.
The legs were wobbly, the top was tired, but it was always my special table. Every Christmas out would come the leaves at either end. It really did get used every day for 30 years.
I felt terrible when we bought a larger dining table a couple of years ago, but this one was just way too small for the room.
I felt as if I had betrayed it....
so it came up in my new art room. Yep, the woman is mad.
But it was never going to get used properly, because I’ve just had an 8'x4' island built in the centre!
Then it occurred to me: make it into a coffee table!
Drop the height, and give it a whole new life!
So when Paul Church came round for tea last night,
I had him lugging the old Futon upstairs too, so that the new coffee table had a friend!
Haven’t had time to dress it with pillows and stuff yet, but you see what I mean now!
Bagpipes! Fondue Forks! Hair curlers! Jeese!!
I think what I am happiest about is that my dear old table, who has been right there every day for all those years, gets a whole new lease of life!
Jane had Dressing table legs - very very warm. But nope. It’s a dining table.
The winner has to be Emma Burns! Old Secret Squirrel had seen the table in the room in a previous picture!
Well done Emma. £25 Gift Voucher coming your way!!
Thank you very very much for joining in everybody!
I hope you enjoyed that; I did!
lots of love,
