I bought a nice metal table base at an auction a week ago Saturday. It was an old apartment size gas stove base that had a steel plate attached as a top. When I bought the base I told my friend Bonnie, that I was going to attach a live edge burl wood as a top. Then, on the next Thursday, at another auction, I bought a great oak slab that someone had mounted to a crappy little set of legs.
We counted the rings on the oak slab and quit at more than 100 years old. I think that it looks great on top of the steel Queen Anne legged base.
I’m a guy who has somehow fallen into the shabby world. A shabby chic world of shabotaged furniture and foo foo accessories. My stuff tends to be outside of the cottage without much chic, shabby or otherwise. My things are the hogs in this world of roses. Thus the title: Hogs and Roses. (Please look at my 1st post "Why Hogs and Roses?")
I want to be Henny Youngman, when I grow up. Take my wife -- please!
I enjoyed 7 years of marital bliss (17 years of marriage). I have been divorced forever. Love my role as curmudgeon, comedian, sage and advisor.
