found a cool metal rod folding thing - unsure of it's original purpose .. but the minute i saw it, i knew we could come up with something cool to do with it ..
it has wonderful patina on the metal, so we left it alone .. other than a good cleaning ..
then we had rod build us a wood tray that could be lifted off .. notched on the ends for easy grip ..
the tray will receive a coat of white paint and light distressing .. and a top coat of poly ..
then we made a little scalloped slipcover of burlap .. it has a wonderful little french look .. perfect for poolside, bedside or an impromptu garden party ..
we are busy getting ready for canton .. you MUST come see us this month .. we have so many wonderful things to share .. an extra big load of small furniture and accent pieces .. lots of slipcovers and lots of pillows .. lots of white stuff .. we are also doing the Dallas Flea this month, so sherry and i will be home except for sat working on things for that show while rod is at canton selling .. so stop in a see him ..
arbors 2, spaces 217 & 218
p.s. later, we found another folding thingy just like this one, so we will have two of these tray tables ..
