A few months ago, I saw these 2 cute “tables” on Craigslist.
I was totally drawn to the little metal wheels.
And not so drawn to the ripped up veneer overlay on the insides of the pieces. The tables used to be a vanity table, but the middle had been cut out (I am picturing Texas Chainsaw Massacre) and now there were 2 pieces.
I textured the half missing/half veneer sides and painted them in a distressed black finish.
When slid together (and they did fit perfectly together like a puzzle)…..they made one cute table.
Either way, I sold them at The Red Apron last month……Winner winner chicken dinner!
But, I am still hung up on the fact that someone sawed the middle out tho…..
Mark your calendars. My next sale is February 17 & 18th.
Linking up to Power of Paint Party.
They look amazing. Glad you sold them. Hugs, Marty
I have one side of an old dressing table that belonged to my Mother, and her Mother before her. Back in the day, if funiture broke, it was repurposed if possible. Chances are, the mirror on yours got broken, so the two end pieces were salvaged.
Who would commit such a furniture sin? I am glad you were able to sell them or should I say it.
I agree that it is possible something happened to the middle. Or, someone may needed bedside tables but not a vanity. I don’t think this is much worse than people painting every single piece of wooden furniture they get their hands on. I have seen people paint beautiful quarter sawn oak for goodness sakes.
