July Projects

 We found this gateleg table at a garage sale.  Legs on both sides need repair...
 a drawer is missing.
But my wife is excited about this table!
 She called on a notice of a FREE "hope chest".
 We picked it up this afternoon.
 This is it - just as we unloaded it from the car.
In the photo above, you can see a bit of loose veneer.
 ^A little of the inlaid decoration that make this attractive.
 Above, the top of the chest has some stains.
I may not be able to remove them completely.
A surprise link to the original owner of the hope chest
and the fact that it was made in Huntington, IN
where I work a day a week
add to our pleasure in owning this piece!
