Roses On My Table

I had more fun at the Saturday night auction.



I bought this old wicker table.  I really thought it needed something to brighten it up.



That same night at the auction I bought three boxes of books, unseen, for a dollar.  A couple of days later, I opened one of the boxes and it had a set of old gardening encyclopedias.  One book was titled "Roses".  Yeah! My favorite.



It was meant to be.  A little decoupage, and the table was dull no more.



I love the vintage feel of it.


I think this would be adorable on a porch or in a sunroom.  And if you get bored, you can learn all about roses.

I'll be joining all the link parties on my sidebar.  I hope you will, too.

  4. You definitely lucked out for $1.00 and for sight unseen, Janet! Great table, too; it would be perfect on a porch surrounded by wicker seating and some lemonade!

  5. I love, love this table. It's so pretty and unusal. The pages really gave this old table some life. If it were me, I'd leave it displayed just as it is because it's perfect.

  6. Great Job! You have inspired me to do the same with a wrought iron table with a rusted top that I use on my patio! Can't wait to get started! I will post when I have it finished!
