(Scroll down below story to read complete item description/condition)

Madeline Perth was so looking forward to the Ladies Auxiliary annual party which was always held at Gwendolyn Brentwood's palatial home, but two days before the event she received a phone call with some bad news. The president of the Ladies Auxiliary called to tell Madeline that Gwendolyn had come down with a nasty case of pertussis and that they desperately needed to find a new venue for the party. She told Madeline that she was her last hope and begged her to host the party. Madeline reluctantly agreed but even as she hung up the phone, a sense of panic struck her. She wondered how in the world she would get her home ready for forty plus "very particular" women--she needed a theme!

Madeline walked out back to the storage shed to pull out some folding chairs for the party when she spied the large pile of miss-matched chairs, broken pieces of furniture and various odds and ends that she had picked at garage sales over the past summer. She had planned on upcycling and painting the pieces but just hadn't had the inspiration yet--now she was inspired! Over the next two days Madeline set about combining, painting and creating unique pieces of furniture that would support her "shabby chic" party theme.

Two weeks after the party and the ladies were still going on and on about Madeline's "shabby themed" party. They all voted that she should host next year's party and several asked her over to help them decorate their own places.

Here is a wonderful little table that looks like it was once used for children's play. It is home-made and constructed out of 1/2" thick plywood and measures 30" X 24" X 22.5" tall. We are dating it to the 1960s. It has a nice, shabby, chippy painted finish with light mint green revealing white and bare wood underneath. The legs are stylishly tapered. This fun table is very sturdy and would make a nice side table, end table or TV stand but could certainly be used by children* for games and coloring. We added a clear satin polyurethane top coat to seal the finish.

As mentioned above this table has a shabby finish with worn paint, small nicks and chips from years of use but is very sturdy with no major structural issues. *Note that the green latex/chalk paint was recently added over the original white paint--no idea if the original white paint underneath has any lead in it.

Shipping from United States

I don't know about you but when I order something online, I like to get it get it fast, so It is our policy to ship items as fast as possible. Most items ship within 1-2 business days of a paid order. Items usually ship via USPS or FEDEX Ground. Lighter items usually ship via USPS Priority Mail while heavier items may ship via FEDEX Ground or USPS Parcel Select. If your shipping address is different than your mailing address, please provide us with both so we use the correct one depending upon the carrier.

We take great care in packing items but on rare occasions an item can be damaged in shipping. All items shipped within the USA are automatically insured against damage. If your item arrives damaged contact us within 5 days from the delivery date so we can process a claim/refund.

We are not responsible for items delivered to your home or business that are lost or stolen after delivery has been confirmed. If you would like us to require a signature upon delivery, please let us know prior to ordering and we will add that option for a nominal cost.

We offer combined shipping discounts on most items (see shipping costs on each item). Please note that Etsy handles combined discounts this way: You pay full listed shipping cost on the item with the most expensive shipping cost and then the combined shipping discount applies to additional items (of lesser shipping costs) on your order.

We are happy to ship internationally on most items but realize that heavy and/or bulky items will be very expensive to ship so we may note on an item that international shipping is not available.The most cost-effective means for shipping internationally is by U.S. Postal Service (either First Class or Priority International mail) but tracking is often unavailable for items sent this way. International delivery times vary from country to country. An item may take anywhere from 7 to 30 days and occasionally longer and depends upon customs or local delivery delays. We have shipped many items all over the globe with very few problems, but items can get lost or stolen along the way. Should an item be lost in the mail, we will provide you with a copy of the U.S Customs form which is proof that we sent the item. The international buyer will be responsible for contacting their own country's customs/mail officials to trace a lost item's whereabouts. WE CANNOT GUARANTEE DELIVERY OF ITEMS SHIPPED OUTSIDE THE U.S.A.

Also note that the international buyer is responsible for any duty or customs fees charged by your country.

The vintage items we sell are over 20 years old (some are much older) and are sold "as is." We do not imply any warranty beyond the 14 day return policy described above. This means that if an item breaks or ceases to function after 14 days of receipt no refund or return option is available.

Some large/bulky furniture items may come to you partially disassembled to keep your shipping costs down and we will state that on the item description. The buyer is responsible for correctly reassembling an item. If you have any questions about reassembly or are not certain that you have reassembled properly, please contact us prior to using the item. If you would prefer to have an item sent to you fully assembled--contact us prior to purchasing so that we can provide a shipping cost for a fully assembled piece. Note- some items may not be available for shipping if they are not partially disassembled. Fully assembled pieces are always available for local pick-up.

We attempt to describe items as best we can but be aware that vintage appliances and electrical devices may have electrical hazards so the buyer is responsible for any risks in use of them.
