Shopping Superstars: Vintage Table

Scroll down and leave a comment or linky to show off all the bargains you got this past week!

I have been searching for a vintage farm table for what seems like the longest time. I’ve been from thrift store to thrift store, yard sale to yard sale and have come up with nothing.

Then, something spectacular happened. As I’m driving by an old used appliance store, sitting outside is a thing of beauty. It’s a table. And not just any table. It’s a table to be admired, enjoyed and bring a family together every evening.

After some haggling with the appliance guy, we got him to come down from $300 to $60. Yes, you read me right. The guy kept going on like it was some table from the 1700s…um I think not. I’m not easily deceived. More like from 1970. Could be older, but no way is this from the 1700s.

Well, without further ado, here’s my masterpiece:

Table Before

Table Leg

Table Charm

It’s rough in some spots, but it adds to the charm don’t you think? I’m already working on the table, and can’t wait to show you an after reveal. So any guesses as to how old you think this is? And don’t tell me it’s not a farm table, because I’m pretending it is. Ignorance is bliss!

See my organic grocery “haul” from this week here.

    I love your table. I have a few very old tables that I have refinished through the years. What I love about those old things is that they are all real wood!

    I think it looks great….the way I figure it out, I love what I perceive as “antiques” whether they truly are or not… is in the eye of the beholder!

    My bargain of the week, was a almost new Red Chicco double stroller from a garage sale for 15.00! It is in excellent condition. It will be perfect for my 16 and 4 month old granddaughters this summer. Seats recline nicely and the sun visors are very long and adjustable.

    Nice find! What type of hardware is used….i.e…nails,screws,etc….is it dovetailed ? You should be able to tell the age just from those alone.Add more pics of those things and I will see what I can come up with. It looks like it could be from the 50’s…not sure.
