Mailbox turned table...

I found this old cast-iron mail box base.  The top was broken, but I knew it still had great potential.  I left the rust just as I found it, but cleaned up the inside and added scrapbooking paper to the top with rubber cement.  With a purchased glass table topper, it makes a great accent table in my bedroom.

Loved reading the whole story behind this mailbox treasure on your blog.
This is a great repurposing with the small table. Love what you've done and the color on your bedroom walls is great too.
Welcome to the posting world of membership. Glad you are sharing some of your great ideas. It sounds like your Junk Fest would be something very fun to attend.
