After acquiring this last year, I just put it in an out of the way spot in my living room. It was pretty much hidden. Last weekend I moved it up front and center.

My mother got it from her aunt who used it on her back porch to GROOM POODLES!!!

It was still all there, but had to be refinished when my mother got it from her aunt. I love it! And love its new location.

The cranberry hobnail lamp in the background is going to go on the table, but I need a little scarf/doily to go under it so that it won't scratch the table or hide the top.

I put little felt pads on the bottoms of my things -- then I don't have to worry about scuffing and I can move things around without worry about doilies.

I got mine at Wal Mart.

That lamp has 10-12 feet. Maybe a whole felt circle cut to fit...

BTW, that is NOT a glass of wine with ice in it. Smile It's a glass of sassafras tea...I just thought it looked pretty in the wine glass...with that lamp and my first 'wedding' photo. Wink

Sherry, is that cranberry hobnail lamp an antique?

I wish!

It's Fenton. DM was a dealer for many years. I like their Burmese line (I have a breakfront China cabinet full of Burmese and a few odds and ends of other Fenton pieces).

1st DH and I were browsing the catalog. He liked this. Christmas 1995 he gave me a Fenton Burmese lamp. I gave him this one.

Sherry, I love the table, such graceful legs and the inlay is beautiful. IMHO, a doily is what is needed under the lamp as that is what was done at the time. One similar to the one you have for the tea. I have so many of my mothers linens that she collected.

nope, not lazy at all. Sometimes we have too many choices. I have so many doilies, runners, table cloths... it is hard to let some go but too many is a chore.

I am so proud you didn't slap a coat of chalk paint and sandpapered to rough up the edges.

I know a lady that took a $500.00 antique Duncan Phyfe hutch, painted the poor thing and reduced the value to about $50.00.

There is nothing so pretty as a well cared for antique where the wood gleams and smells of lemon oil.

Craigslist in my area has a table like that one and is asking $375.00 for it. I love your table.

I like wood...the grain and the feel...and the warmth of wood. IMHO you only paint over cheap wood or furniture that is broken and repaired cheaply.

I've painted only one piece of furniture in my life - my grandmother's kitchen cabinet. It probably had 43 layers of paint on it already. Wink I did strip it down some, but when I saw the wood was not very good, I painted it like my granddad did...white.

My opinion.
