Have I ever told you how much I love Craigslist? Well, it rates right up there with raspberry tea. I love it. I tell you. I love it. Now, Craigslist is kind of funny, not funny ha-ha, more like "They've got to be kidding" kind of funny. Every once in awhile I come across an ad that sparks my curiosity. Not to many weeks ago the ad read, "Communion table, love offering, e-mail." E-mail I did. Two days later Bob the Builder is looking at me, the look only The Builder seems to have, as we were loading the Communion table into the 'Pink Cadillac'. I'm so excited I'm telling him the endless possibilities. Buffet, seems most likely, but the idea I love is a counter at a bakery, Bread of Life. See, I'm on to something here. He wonders out loud to me, "do you believe a customer opening a bakery is going to be coming through your junk booth, and go ah ha just what I was looking for? I repeated stranger things have happened! You Mr. Builder just loaded a communion table into a pink Caddie.
I've never met a piece of furniture that this product couldn't help.
Yes, it is an awfully big piece of furniture to paint. To help me move it around, I put casters on it. The casters are staying. I'm loving the industrial look right now.
Paint, advertising item, tin ceiling strips and chalkboard paint, helped to finish the look.
I hope you like. I'm always scared of the reveal. I promised to show you, and I don't make my promises lightly. We took these pictures at a band shell in our town. It seems a girl taking pictures in the park of a communion table, can bring some onlookers. I felt so bad, because there were actual cars that stopped and got out thinking something big was about to happened. I was willing to share the bread. They didn't seem to be to amused by that. I winked at The Builder just to say, see!
Before I sign off,. I want to thank each of you who sent extra special notes to see if I was ok this last week. Thank you, thank you, thank you. Your kindness did not go unnoticed. Can't thank you enough for stopping by!
