Monday, while walking my big doofus of a dog, I saw this table curbside. It had an interesting top but was in BAD shape! The base was broken and it was really beat up with nicks and gouges. Tuesday is trash day so I walked home figuring it would be gone by tomorrow.
All day Tuesday, I thought about that table. However, my daughter had taken my truck to a school function and I could not go and pick it up even if it was still there!
Along comes Wednesday morning and my time to walk the dog. Lo and behold, it is still there. Toronto garbage pick-up is very particular (read: “union”) and this table was not “tagged” nor was it at a true garbage pickup spot. Regardless, I took a closer look….
“Hmmmm… Big round table top and 4 nice legs…..”
“Hmmm FREE.” Shall I repeat “FREE!!”
My DIY persona got the best of me!
Yes of course I took it home and dismantled it!
The drawers were also there but rather useless without a solid frame.
Dismantling took about 20 minutes
This is want I am keeping.
I do have a plan for the top and I am thinking the legs could be used to build an upholstered bench!
Stay tuned! It may take me a while but these lovelies will make an appearance in the near (or far) future and I am sure they will be
