It's time for Sidewalk Sunday!

If you are new here, Sidewalk Sunday was an idea that I had after I realized that I was getting pretty lucky with curbside finds. Usually furniture that no one else saw the potential in, shoved curbside after a yard sale on Sunday.  Sort of like this chair...

Mr. Treasures was on his way home from running an errand one afternoon and saw her sitting on the side of the road.

By the way, if you are counting that is six chairs and one settee that need to be recovered.
 (I'm going to really need to pay attention to all the tutorials that are out there or get a 2nd job to pay for it!)

This next piece is really pretty cool.

It's actually an old card table. The sides fold up and spin to reveal...

Hidden compartments where the cards and possibly poker chips would have been kept.

I got this table from a co-worker that said she intended on refinishing it but just never did. It sat in her backyard for 2 years before she finally decided it was never going to happen.

Yay me!

Here's a close up of the legs...

Can't wait to work on her! Mr. Treasures is actually sanding her right now.


P.S. if you are wondering why this post is happening on a Monday evening- well that's because I thought I set it up to post automatically yesterday but I was mistaken. You forgive me- right?
