A Spool Table and a Winner!

My neighbor brought home a few old spools and pallets for me the other day.

It felt like Christmas!
Now one of the spools is an end table in my family room.
Did you grow up with these as end tables? I did! We used to walk on them turned side ways around the backyard when we were little. My Dad has been a recycler, junker and gardener since before any of it was even trendy….
That’s my Dad right there!
The table has markings on it that I love. The nuts and bolts are all rusty too.
It fits the rustic style of our family room.
Now for the winner of this cute sign made by On The Avenue!
If your name is Jo and you left a message for Mandy, YOU are our lucky winner!!!
Congratulations Jo!

Everyone have a wonderful week!!!!

Thanks for renewing my memories. love ya,… Read more »

I laughed when I saw the title of your post…my husband started a new job and there are wood spools that he is trying to get rid of. I told him I want one for a patio table and he gave me a funny look. lol! I knew I wasn't crazy!
