Double Pedestal Coffee Table

This is such a unique piece. The previous owner said that it had been a dining or kitchen table at one point, but that someone had cut down the legs. Either way, I love it's shape and bones!

In other news, I have been striking OUT with thrifting and garage sales lately! So frustrating! What kind of things have you found?

What a cool table with a beautiful finish! No junking for me ... I'm trying to make my way through my own stuff and finish up all those pieces that never seem to get done! I'm making good progress. I'd like to see it all done and gone so I can start fresh!
