The Table - Before

We found this table on one of our Saturday garage sale outings. It needed a little work, well, the cushions needed work. The rest of the table was just fine, albeit, not the look I wanted. The table is huge! It is 72" long and has 3 (yes 3!) leaves that are 22" each. That is a whopping total of 138", 11.5 feet long. It will fit in our dining room but we'd only use all the leaves if we need a huge buffet table for a party... perhaps a little boy's one year birthday! It is 44" wide and is heavy. Plus it came with 8 chairs! 6 regular chairs and 2 arm chairs.

SWEET!   :)

We were lucky enough to get it for a bargain. We were also lucky enough to commission a local artist at The Old Flamingo to paint the table and chairs. Thanks Josie, it was quite an undertaking!

Anyway, here are the before pictures...

Next up, the plan for the table!


  1. Cha-ching! What a find. What a find!

  2. I can't wait to see the finished cushions! The table turned out so beautiful!

    1. YAY! Thanks. When are you and lady D free for a play date? Email me!
