If your internet is somewhat slow, when this blog is loading, you’ll see a background of gorgeous aged wood planks – which I just love.
So, I was especially thrilled to win an old farm table with really aged wood at an auction yesterday.
Would you look at that wood?!
It appears a little sliver of wood was coming loose, so someone used tiny nails to secure it.
I was doubly pleased when I found out the table belonged to the grandmother of my son’s college instructor. She told me she was really glad to know it was going home with me…which was really sweet.
And check out the threaded wood at the end of the legs.
I was thinking of painting the legs and underbase white,
but for now I’m leaving them their original color until I decide.
Late last night I stained it with Min Wax Golden Oak
I love how it brought out the marks and cracks in the wood.
