When Emily from Elizabeth Joan Designs spotted this darling child size Queen Anne style table and chairs at a friend's garage sale, she was smitten.

Dee from Meatloaf and Melodrama has had this small table in her family room for several years. She explains, "Although it was functional, it was also drab and dark. It was also a bit too modern for me."

"A few months ago when I spotted a beat up little table, apparently ready to be discarded on a friend’s porch, I just had to ask about the little table’s future," says Joan from Nicer Than New.

At Dewdrop Gables, friends who know about Debbie's penchant for old furniture passed this old telephone table along to her. "This poor, dog-chewed phone table, was a mess!" she laments. "Aside from the damage by their dog, it was rickety and had ugly fabric on the seat."
