This is my new very old table from France. I wasn't looking for a table, aside from a farm table, but I knew when I saw her that it would most likely be perfect in this spot. Oh, and do you see the ghost of Bailey? Creepy.
She is very old and has this beautiful inlaid top.
She has a pretty inlaid border on the bottom shelf, too. Ahem, excuse the dust that the darn camera has captured.
I love her scalloped apron.
Looking closer you can see where someone over the years has tried to repair the inlay.
She came with this leg broken during shipping. When we looked at it it is actually an old break that had been repaired and broke again. Mr. Savvy glued it back for me.
I love how all these old pieces are built with pegs. There are no nails or screws. These were built by very artistic craftsmen.
Her legs are very thin so I am not surprised that one broke in the past.
I have filled the bottom with vintage books and other bits.
This plant is loving this sunny spot. I can't believe I haven't killed it yet.
I love her in this room.
Where is the table that was here before? Oh, it is in another room serving a new purpose and you will see it eventually. You can see the old one that was in this room here.
Oh, and Mr. Savvy said I shouldn't have bought this table since she had a few issues. I told him he would have a few issues too if he was over 200 years old or so.
That shut him up!
See you tomorrow for another guest blogger's favorite room.
