Are you curious to find out what you are looking at?
Well, let's take a look...starting with the before!
I purchased a vintage heavy floor lamp table at our local thrift store several months ago. It looked like this...
I knew it needed some work, but thought if I sold it cheap enough in my booth, it would sell and someone else could fix it up...NOT! People seem to want to pay higher prices and get the piece finished. Well, it sat around in my booth and never sold. So today, I brought it back home, took it apart and transformed it into this beauty...
Originally the piece had a round glass for a table. I took that off. It also had two glass pieces but one was broken, so I threw that away which led me to be creative to fill in the space.
Then I looked though my stash and found this teapot, sans a lid and the teacup and saucer. I drilled holes in them to allow for the rod to thread through.
I just let my creativity take over as to how to put it back together from the bottom to the top. It fit back perfectly and has so much shabby chic charm now. I am sure it will sell fast this time around!
