Thrift store find.....show and tell!

I was to pooped to post last night for Show & Tell Friday.
So will do this one instead.
Yesterday was one of those busy days, where I had a To Do List a mile long!
Had lots of stops to make not to mention some bloodwork to get done at the doctors.
Once I got my errands done then I had a little time to play too.
So I popped in a thrift store, I rarely go anymore but thought it would be fun.
And look what I found.......guess how much I paid for the mirror and table?
They will be a project, like I needed that but they were sort of to neat to pass up.
Someone did a crackle finish thing on them that does not do them justice.
And the mirror, well I can't pass up an old or old looking mirror, is going to get Frenched up a bit. But all the figural details at the top are real carved wood.
Guy at the thrift store said he just put them out. Well then they were suppose to be mine, because I rarely get there before the antique or reuse store owners do on things like this!

The detail on the mirror, all real carved wood.
I think this would be pretty Frenched up a bit, with prisms or glass
bead chain rather than the metal chain.




The table, like a high sofa table.

Alot of cool turnings and details. Can you see this all black?

2 great pieces. That table would look great black (in my opinion).
