So, I know pottery barn hasn't been around that long. And, I also know that people had to make do "back in the day". But, this "kid's table" was a little extreme. I wish I had the true before pic. (again, terrible blogger here)...But, let me paint a pic for you. Vinyl, ORANGE vinyl. Felt trim, PEA GREEN felt trim. And, a few 1960's towels for cushion. You see, this little beauty had orange vinyl stretched across the top of it. The person who attached the vinyl thought that a little cushion to the top of the table would be nice. So, they, apparently, went to their linen closet and grabbed a few of their old bath towels, folded them up, stretched the vinyl across it. THEN, they added the gorgeous pea green felt trim. But, when I saw the table that was straight out of Jane Fonda's 1960's home, I peeked underneath. And, I saw great rough wood. So, I grabbed the tag off and it was mine. Well, I got home, stripped vinyl off and I thought the top looked pretty cool. (see below) But, it was in pretty rough shape. So, it sat on my back porch like this FOR MONTHS. I needed inspiration on what to do with it.
LOOK---there is the VINYL- YOU SEE IT??
