We have a festival twice a year called the "Southern Iowa Junk Jaunt". It's in June and again in October. Little shops start popping up for miles. You get a map that connects all the little towns along the way. Kids are out with lemonade stands and others sell sandwiches and homemade candies. People come from all over the United States to shop. The Centerville, Iowa square is alive with some of most wonderful people you could ever meet. They have wine tasting and some of the best food ever. Little shops not open any other time of the year are chucked full of everything you just HAVE to have. Antiques Farmhouse country and artisans of all kinds.
I found this adorable little square table with 4 ladderback chairs that had woven seats. I just HAD to have it! I looked at my car and thought, How can I get all that into my Caliber??? No, that just wasn't going to happen. Worried that someone else would buy it while I was figuring out how to get it home, I snatched it up and paid for it. Then, I made the call... I called my dear husband, who knew this call was coming, according to him LOL. He drove our truck nearly an hour to meet me and load up my table and chairs. I was SO Excited. He said coming to get my table was a lot cheaper then letting me drive his truck! He's sooo funny.
I got it home and went to work. I sanded off all the old paint and put wheels on the table. Then I sealed all the wood. I put it out on our breakfast porch. Right now, it's very country or shabby chic. I might paint the chairs later, I don't know. I absolutely LOVE it though! I cannot wait until October!!
