Game Table turned Breakfast Nook or Entry Table

Do you ever have trouble naming your blog entries? Yeah...obviously me too. This one has a lame name. Oh well...the table itself is NOT lame.

Last week I found this one for $7.99 at Goodwill. It's Thomasville and solid wood.

It was a game table in it's previous life, but I wondered if many people still use game tables...given that you can play chess and checkers on your computer and phone. So I repurposed it into either a large entry table (for those of you with grand foyers...our entry is not big!) OR this could be a perfect, 2 person table for a kitchen nook.

Here she is today!

Allison that grey is so soft and soothing. Perfect pick, sure beats 'pecan' brown any day.

What a wonderful job you did! That photo of the gray against the pretty red tea roses makes me want to pull up a chair for a cuppa. You chose the perfect shade and the details are lovely. And yes, I have trouble at times naming my posts, I'll often go back and change them.
Here's a few suggestions...

"When gray is good"
"A lame game turns out a real winner"
"Turning the table"
Have a wonderful week, tami
