MAKING THE OLD NEW AGAIN



This is a table that has had several lives, I’m sure. My grandparents, at one time, owned a house that had been previously owned by a well-to-do family. It was then made into an apartment house, and this little wooden table was one of the things that Grampa and Gramma took out of there at some point along the way.



It isn’t of any worth antique wise but is a useful piece of furniture nonetheless. They gave it to me when I was 14, and I used it in my bedroom at that time. It has stayed with me all these years.



Peach and yellow are the main colors in my living room, so when I painted, I also decided to paint the table to match. It now holds some living room plants in bright yellow pots. It gave a new life to the little table that I have had for 32 years, and who knows how long it was around before that.

I love giving old things a new lease on life, it's recycling at its finest!

Oh yes, indeed! In fact, I just made a new category for this called Recycling. :)
