Wishing I'd Taken A "Before" Picture!


I found this old mission table at a junk store. The top was bowed and boards lifting, seriously water damaged and grayed. Look at it now. I'd had no idea on starting I could get it looking so good.

I am curious how much you paid for it?

Don't sell yourself short; we're our own worse critics...

Like that table shows, beauty lies within becoming apparent when the right person brings it out...

Some could look at that same table and not see it's beauty and value... the old adage is true... beauty is in the eye of the beholder...
