this little side table with yellow/orange chippy paint was in the trash because it was falling apart. I took it home and put it back together. I haven't decided yet what i want to do with it, so its sitting in my little 'creativity studio'.

It is currently in our entry way next to a chair holding a small old silver tray for keys. Mine is a robins egg blue color. I love the paint on your. So chippy and perfect.

shamrockerin writes: Sue, I LOVE your idea for turning it upside down and hanging a mirror from it! Its a nice little table, but its kinda small and short so it looked kinda weird among my normal-sized furniture, but that's a great new use for it! Posted: 9:29 am on January 21st
purple412 writes: These little tables were always popular! I heard them called half-moon tables before, really. I had one I picked up at a yard sale many years ago for $5. I kept it for quite awhile until I got into business and started selling most of what I find, hee, hee! I painted it white, distressed it and sold it fairly quickly. Back to yours, I also, like it just as it is, chipping paint and all! Posted: 9:58 pm on January 20th

suewhitney writes: My brain immediately turned this upside down to look at its possibilities from that angle. Could you remove the front leg. hang a mirror from the back leg support, and mount it to the wall? A little hard to tell from the photo, but looks like a possibility.

Take care,
