Final shot first:
What an unusual table!
What, an unusual table?
Have you ever seen a table like this? What was it for? A game? A ritual? I purchased it for the heavily discounted rate of $15 from Out of the Closet in Atwater Village a week or so ago. It was in bad shape:
- One loose leg
- It didn’t stand straight
- Appeared to have been dropped down several flights of stairs
- heavy gouging and missing hardware
- What was the leather thing? a lamp? a roulette wheel? a drum?
- Now that I see the photos I promise it looked worse in person
My teammate provided a bowl that seemed as though it was made for the giant circular hole,
Here it is all finished in the living room. It freed up a lot of space in the room and is a fun and unique piece to have around!
