I love to treasure hunt at our local Goodwill and Salvation Army stores. In our area, I usually score better home accessories at SA, but recently, I picked up a little table with hairpin legs from Goodwill. I knew that I would be kuh-ray-zee not to take advantage of the $7 price tag on a set of beautiful hairpin legs.
I always wonder about the history of pieces like this. This one was in pretty rough shape.
I removed the particle board round top (from a cheapy accent table, I think), and painted a tray that I already had with Rustoleum's Aqua. The legs got a light sanding and a couple of coats of satin black spray paint.
I'm digging it.
