Odd Little Side Table...

Hi Bloggerettes!  I found this side table that was a dark wood stain.
I liked the looks of it, but honestly I have no idea why it has a storage compartment in the bowed front.  If any of you know what this is then I'd love to know.

I painted it a soft creamy green and added the clock face knob for some interest. 


Made some garland from burlap and lace scraps....

I love adding to my clock collection...


It's going to be a lovely weekend here on the coast and I hope it is wherever you are too.  Hope you find something wonderful at a yard sale, estate sale or an auction.  If you do, remember we want to see it!!

~~hugs~~

You are right, it's an odd little thing. But you made it look really cute! (I like the knob!). It's really unique. Are you selling it or is it a keeper?

You have a wonderful Friday and a great weekend!

Hugs,
Nancy

That's an interesting feature, Sissie. I have no idea what it might be for, but I'd be interested to find out if anyone knows. Cute knob; I can see why you chose it from your clock collection!

It's cute as can be, but now i'm so curious why it does have that little storage door on it??? The garland is precious too... Girl, you do everything, your hands must never stop working!

Beautiful I say!! I don't have a clue what the compartment is for..but I am sure you will find something very special to put in it. Do you have a tutorial for the garland? Thanks and keep the great posts coming!!

Cute table. I wonder if that compartment is for a man's pipe stuff. Not sure really.

It is darling. I do think it is an old tobacco table. Is the inside lined at all? Really cute whatever it is! xo Diana

I wonder if it is a sewing table, you know where the lady of the house keeps her needlework tucked away until she is sitting down and can get back to it? Whatever it is, it is cute! Love the clocks!

Jacqui said...

I love it, and what you have done with it! Gorgeous!

Theresa said...

I am wondering if it is some kind of a smoking table? Let us know if you find out. What a great find though, I would use it for my remote controls for the TV...welcome to 2011 LOL!

Hey, Sissie! What a sweet table. I love the garland you made. We did a similar one for my daughter's wedding but the strips were longer. I really like the smaller, more compact look. This would be a great use for some of my scraps! Thanks for the inspiration!

Donna said...

Hi Sissie,
I think that may have been a sewing table? Great piece! Love all of your treasures!!

I have NEVER seen a table like that and have no idea why it would have storage.... but I'd have snapped it right up too. It's just darling......and I can NEVER have too much storage over here at the itsy, bitsy cottage....

Huggies,

Never seen a table like this, but it seems like a real conversation starter. Love the interesting knob you added to it too. If you ever do find out what that drawer is for, please let us know!

How beautiful, Sissie! My first instinct was a sewing table? I love the fun little knob you added and your pretty burlap and lace garland.
