I spend a lot of time at flea markets and estate sales. My acquisitions lean toward the functional, yet somewhat quirky. I need to be able to justify that piece to myself before I’ll bring it home. And of course I have to negotiate about the price.
This little table is made from sticks. I am drawn to the designs painted on the surface and, after a good cleaning and a few other things, will put it to good use. I have another one similar to this that’s been passed down from a grandmother and I think they’ll work well together.
Hand painted designs on handmade furniture will make me smile.
