Fun Find

A couple of weeks ago, I was scouting around Country Village in Bothell with a friend and found this odd little table in front of an antique mall.  I loved the funky chartreuse color and I really loved the price: FREE!

The top of the cabinet lifts up, and there were file folders inside...the old fashioned ones with metal tabs on the edge, another bonus!  The table extension folds down, to make it quite compact.  I thought about it for a few minutes, we live in an apartment with very limited room after all.  I decided it would make a great addition to our patio, where the table will come in handy for holding our plates and glasses when we eat outside, or perhaps my journal??   The outside journaling idea sold the deal, so we scooped it up and took it home!

Here is another view of the outside of the antique mall.  I love the old windows, but we already have one hanging on the outside wall of our patio.

My husband is usually the champ of thrift store shopping and dumpster diving, but I think I did pretty well this time!

What a great find and you'll enjoy it all summer. Journaling outside sounds the best.
