~ Mr. Sweetie's Table ~


This is the table that Mr. Sweetie built last summer that I finally finished painting today.
Duck Egg Blue and Old White with a little dry brushing of Provence.


Mr. Riddle, the local metal shop man, created the top out of galvanized metal...only $75.00.
  
The legs are old corbels I purchased in Round Top a couple of years ago.  Mr. Sweetie cut the corbels down to table height...added a little trim on the ends and salvaged bead board on the sides...
and presto you have a table.

Oh I forgot, the top is 3/4" plywood under the metal.


I've been wanting to set the table since last year.  So since I finished painting it today, I will show you two table settings.  Of course I decide to do this staging in 100 degree weather!

Blue and red enamelware is the first table setting.


I used a galvanized roofing crown as part of the center piece...not a very good picture.


For the second setting I used my Grandmother's dishes that my Mom gave me.  
They are marked Victory by Salem China Co., Salem Ohio.  
Does anyone know anything about these dishes?  




As you can tell from my pictures...I'm still learning about my new camera.
  
Oh well I will keep trying!

I love that table. Love the color and all the details. I am from Ohio but don't know about the dishes. They are pretty though.

that table is amazing and that seems like a great price for the table top! Your dishes are lovely, too.

That table is awesome! Can't believe you got the top for $75! Is he in McKinney?
