Antique Lyre Coffee Table Rescued & Restored

Back a month or so ago, I shared how I went to scope out some items being sold off by a young couple that recently bought a downtown vacant building. I came home with many treasures, like the antique Art Deco waterfall cedar chest I redid (see it here). While there, I also instantly fell in love with this antique lyre coffee table.

Here how the story goes…we live in Ohio and love to be outdoors, but the winters can be long. However, come early spring it’s still cold, but we do get a random warm day (by warm I mean above 30 degrees). So, when one of those days popped up, we did our family Read more

Farmhouse Drop-Leaf Table Updated

Do you ever do something just because you want to? Like, eat an extra cookie, or take a drive down a country road…just because you want to. Those kinda things are liberties that can break a funk we are in, but the key is limiting it so it doesn’t get out of control. Well…in the last week I managed to acquire 6 large pieces of furniture all at once. ahem. So, you can bet I’ll be firing out some furniture makeovers in the next few weeks. haha! For instance, I’ve always wanted to work on another farmhouse drop-leaf table like this, so I bought it. Nuff said.Vintage Drop-Leaf Table Before Makeover by Prodigal Pieces | prodigalpieces.com

I know I say it all the time, but I had no intention of coming home with this size of a table. My workshop was empty and I was loving it. So, how did it end up with me? Well, I took my kids for a thrift store scavenger hunt – where I give them a list of things to find and they team up to see who can find them first. We needed a break from our schedule and that was a last-minute option.

While they were racing to find their items, I found Read more
