I realize that most of you don't come here to see random items of furniture I have desecrated, so I will keep this short and sweet.
I bought $5 antique drop leaf table at garage sale.
Then I completely destroyed my dining room for a few days (I do not work fast).
And ended up with this.
Which I then hauled outside to take pictures.
However, this destruction ended up being ultimately very productive, since it pushed me over the edge of sanity and threw me into an obsessive compulsive daylong cleaning/organizing frenzy. It was one of those days where my children did nothing but watch videos and eat peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, and no piece of furniture remained in it's original position, even if it had 400 lbs worth of books in it or 400 lbs. worth of toys underneath it. Jessie wasn't sure if he'd entered the right house when he got home in the wee hours of the morning after that night. He was super mad that I'd moved all that furniture by myself, in a "tickling will be your punishment" kind of way.
