Then There Were Two...


Last week when I was looking through some older posts at My Interior Life, I came across this table Kathy had spotted at her Habitat store.


I couldn't believe it because just last week I saw....

This at my Habitat store. Same table. And like Kathy it has really grown on me. It is big and white and laminate, ie: easy to clean. It is marked down to $50. If I still had a basement, I would totally buy this...


Surround it with happy, yellow friends and use it as a craft table. Or, if I had a beach house, it could be my dining room table or...oh I don't know, there are lots of things you could do with it. So what do you think? Is it growing on you or are you scared of it?

And a big thank you to Ally, From The Right Bank , for nominating me for a Homie Award!!! You can read more about The Homies here.

  2. You know I love it! It seeps into your subconscious, doesn't it? I think it's really fun and yellow chairs would be perfect. Too funny that you found the table's twin or should I say sibling (since they're different colors).

  6. Oh my goodness, if the white one were near me for $50, it would already be in my home! Where in my home? I don't know. But somewhere. Maybe the kitchen. Someday I will send a picture. And congrats on the nomination!

  9. love the white one! for $50, I could definitely find an awesome use for it - dining table, craft table, sewing table.... the possibilities are endless! My Habitat store has become my favourite place to hang out :)

  10. I adore it but I think the husband would blow a gasket - traditional guy that he is! I saw a very cool ivory color laminate table with brass accents at a local thrift store here a few weeks ago - so KWID - nowhere to put it and I can't get it off my mind!

  11. With the proper preparation and finish, plastic laminate makes a perfect foundation for a decorative painting. Take a look at a good book, such as the one by the great Isabel O'Neil, for inspiration. For example this table would be fantastic with a bronzed base and a faux tortoiseshell top!

  12. I have never seen a table like that. So ugly it's pretty.

    That's awesome! Don't know what a Homie is but I know you should win. I'll go check it out.
