Street Corner Find Inspiration

On my way to the American Way Thrift Store the other day, when I spotted this table on the side of the road.  It was a little tricky getting it into the Prius.  I had to leave the hatch back open.  If you were driving behind me last Friday, I apologize for going 5 miles per hour on the streets of Burbank.

Anyway, I obviously skipped the thrifting to get going with this amazing little dining table.  It has retractable leaves and really cool scalloped trims.

I have been with out a dining table for a few months now….long story, but I realized recently that I need one.  I want to have a proper meal with Ralph on occassion and not sit in front of the TV.  Also, Thanksgiving!
