On table, two table New table..

Some times it is hard to think outside of the table but on this occasion I did. 
The base of the above table had this warped top on it.

I did not discard this ..I am thinking distressed clock face wall hanging....

The Good oval top was on the broken base by Handy Hubby. He could not resist getting involved I had the power tools out.  He is so precise, that had to be dead center. 
 Thank goodness one of us is that way!

We centered the mounting bracket from the round warped table base on to the oval lovely table top. Screwed the oval  good top on to the good base.

I painted it with Annie Sloan old Linen , distressed with medium steel wool then fine steel wool, then topped it off with Annie Sloan clear wax that I buffed with fine steel wool.

A new table!

Went by the booth today and it is sold!
It is overwhelming to think that some one has a little piece of my work sitting in their home!
Hope this inspires you to look differently at Broken tables.....
