I think they're pieces that will be with her for awhile. We painted the tables. The white one was given to her by her sister. It originally had a dropleaf on each side, but they were so warped the table was unusable. So off they came. The mirror is faux wood-in other words, plastic. Looks pretty good though. The chair is very sturdy. I think she's decided to keep it as is. We'll replace the dryrotted gimp around the needlepoint seat, which is in wonderful condition. I don't think that's original to the chair, but it's rather old. Here's what we ended up with after a Sunday afternoon in the backyard enjoying the 80 degree temps and sunshine.

Flea Market Treasures
Well, my youngest daughter is in town this week on spring break. She's a junior in college and will be staying at school most of the summer interning. Environmental Research. So, that means her first apartment! Enter a visit to our local flea market. She picked each of these items out herself.
