Finds Wednesday – My Big Reveal!

By Andrea

So, last Wednesday, I left you with a sneak peek of one of my garage sale finds …


Ready to find out what it is?


Our lovely vintage chrome and Formica table! We’ve been debating on this type of table for awhile, but we had a hard time finding the right one, especially at the right price. I nearly missed this one at a garage sale, as it was disassembled and just leaning up outside. Good thing for Darren’s sharp eye!


It also has a leaf, which must have been kept in the table all of the time, as there’s no colour difference between the leaf and the table.


Perfect match, yay!


The table legs were a little bit rusty, I am guessing the table was stored outside.


However, a bath of CLR and water removed the rust completely.

And, as an added bonus, the table matches the yellow cracked ice vinyl step stool/ chair we picked up a couple of years ago – which Ella is now big enough to use.


It looks great with the table!


I hope you all enjoyed my big find!

      Thanks, Eartha! I am really quite pleased with how the legs came out, worked even better than I thought it might!

    Oh my goodness! That is the luck, I am telling you. Especially with the leaf being the same color. That is the part I struggled with finding our table!

      I knew you had issues with the leaf, and I had seen quite a few where the leaf really did not match as well. Between the leaf, and it matching our chair that we already had, I definitely had luck finding this one!

    What an awesome find!!! And having the step stool to match – extra bonus!!! My husband sounds like yours – he always finds things I’ve overlooked and I swear I looked what whatever the item was. Enjoy you cute new table!

      Thanks, Joyce! Yep, I totally looked at what was in front of the table, and missed the table completely! Good thing our husbands catch what we missed, eh? 🙂
