I love tables. Small tables. Large tables. End tables. Coffee tables. Plant tables.

A few weeks ago at the antique store I saw this 1950's-era formica-topped aluminum table and fell in love with it. But I turned away from it, knowing I had no need for it and no place for it. Several days ago I was talking to the lady who helps out at the antique store. I told her that I really liked that table, but... and she immediately said, "If you'll buy it I'll give you a good deal." The price was $75 and she told me I could buy it for $45. And she'd deliver it, if I liked.

I went home and talked to Steve and he said he thought I should get it. It'll be useful when he finishes my yarn studio. I can put my cutting mat on it and use it when I cut fabrics for sewing.

And some day, if one of the children needs a kitchen table, he or she can have it.

I just started reading your blog. My mom bought a formica yellow table from an older family friend. When I needed a table, she gave it to me. It is now about 65 years old and is in great condition! Clay, crayons, markers, glue, pen, paint, and other substances have been on the table and it looks as good as new. It has remained strong through many cups of coffee and tea, family dinners, parties, tears, and laughter. If that table talk, it could really tell some stories!! Enjoy!!
