My junk store find...

For some time I've been looking for a little table to go beside the church pew. It needed to be something old and it was o.k. if it was rough looking. Last Saturday, I made a trip to a local junk antique store. I explained to one of the owners what I was looking for and honestly, I followed that sweet woman through that entire store upstairs and down. I had just about decided that the trip was futile when she spotted a little table describing it as an old telephone table.

I was a bit skeptical at first. There was no knob on that little door up top and it was really dirty and dusty. But it was half the seller's price...a clearance table!!! I do love a good deal. I bought it and brought it home, sat it by the church pew and promptly got too busy to think about doing any clean up or think about the knob. Today I went to the hardware store and found this perfect glass knob, came home and cleaned the table up and put a lamp and a couple of pictures on it and voila! I love the look! I even put the knob on myself....I know, you're thinking no big deal....but I'm not a crafty, creative person so it was a big deal to me!

What do you think?

I love it.

Yep - - - it IS a telephone stand. The little door up top was to hide the phone book - - - all the other shelves were for "pretties"
