I'm all about having unique pieces of furniture in your home and you can find some really great, affordable pieces to redo on ebay. The only drawbacks are that you can't inspect the piece before buying and you have to pay for freight shipping, which isn't cheap. Unless of course you are lucky enough to live near the person selling them. I have taken to browsing every so often to fantasize about how I would rehab certain pieces if I had more space, time and money. Check out lookingformod, artcollector-usa and tsandcompany. I have been watching the above table for weeks. Unfortunately there is no room for it in my apartment. Wouldn't it look great in an entryway or behind a sofa? Especially if someone painted it orange. Now that would be a bold statement. Just a thought.
I like the off-white color but I'm not a fan of gold. Would have to change the color of the knob or replace it completely.
Would definitely paint over the gold trim with orange or black lacquer spraypaint.
