Found this table top at a junky antique shop (my favorite kind of antique shop!). I paid $5 and couldn't wait to find the right base for it. A few days later I came across this kerosene heater and couldn't get home fast enough to put the two together! I didn't make any changes to the stove but did refinish the top and stenciled it with the same pattern that was on the grate on the stove. I love the combination of the rough and the polished. I put the piece in a shop and it sold right away!
