25 Cents?

My parents and I were out doing our usual Saturday morning rounds. We walked up to one estate sale and saw furniture labeled 25. We didn't think much of it as $25 furniture is reasonable for decent estate furniture until I got up to the Duncan Phyfe table, complete with leafs, clearly labeled $1.00. Wait? is this furniture .25?? I'll take that credenza over there! Said I without giving it a second look since I desperately need one for the tv upstairs.

It has an ugly antiqued finish but nothing a little paint won't fix. I figured it was one of those fiberboard-y pieces since I didn't really look at it but when we actually went to move it, my mom and I couldn't even help lift it! Now it sits on the porch since I can't decide whether to paint or refinish it to its former glory.


  1. Did you take the $1 table too? I probably would have. =)

  2. I think I have 4 tables around here so I resisted the strong temptation. The worst part is we had to come back an hour later to pick this up and the table was still there! Really!? no one wanted that poor table!

  3. That is gorgeous! I hope you decided to refinish, but I'll be ok if you painted it, too. So jealous!
