I am sooo happy to finally have this table out of the garage!!! It is a really cool antique drop leaf dining table that has a beautiful double pedestal base. But it was in pretty sad shape.


You guys already know how much I love drop leaf tables, particularly as side tables and night stands with the leaves down. Using it as an entry table is perfect too since we always tend to plop down piles of stuff as we walk in the door.

Once my tulips pass their expiry date I can already envision a beautiful, grand arrangement of spring branches taking center stage.

I really wanted to let the original ebony finish underneath peek through because it is such a stunning contrast from the white.


It would be great in a small eat in kitchen as well, or as a library table with two elegant wing back chairs pulled up~
The possibilites are truly endless when you have the flexibility of extending the table or leaving it so compact.

I should have it up on White Berry later today.

That exact table was my husband and I's 1st piece of furniture! We were lucky enough to have 2 chairs that came with it! It is such a beautiful piece in white, we painted ours black and just LOVE it! I'm sure it will go quickly, good work!:)

Question/Suggestion: Have you considered adding a SEARCH bar to your blog? It would be very useful for us readers who like to look back over previous projects! :)

Natalie, I REALLY want to add a search feature! I think I need to go back and tag posts using key words and get my web designer to rig something up because I love using those on other blogs~
