L-O-V-E at first sight

So This past weekend I spent the day with my mother and a family friend-we hit up Target, World Market, Tuesday Mornings and a few other stops!  While we were out enjoying the nice weather, we ran across this new consinment shop in town called "New Leaf."  It is not a huge place, but they had some good finds and I fell in L-O-V-E  with this table. 


 It is an antique pub table with the twisted spiral legs.  For something built around the 1920's, this little guy is in GREAT shape. This is not some "rinky-dink" table at which you are afraid to sit- it is heavy hard ans sturdy!  The craftmenship on this beauty is AMAZING!  There are no nails in it-the table is all notched out for the pieces to fit together-it really is something you have to see in person to really get it. 


It can be used as a small square table, but with the two leaves in, it is the perfect length and width for the space in my kitchen!   Did- I mention how much I L-O-V-E  this guy!

I really like the fact that the four chairs have the same spiral as the table legs




I have plans for recovering these bad boys soon, but I will have to look through my scrap fabric to see what will work best.   Hummm...My wheels are turning. 

I will post pictures when I get the breakfast nook up and running!

Oooh I like! I can't believe the entire set is still together! I'd love to see the house and all your beautiful furniture in person. I think Ben, Sipsey and I will head down to Auburn one weekend this spring. I'd love to get together!
