I knew that when I moved into this house that I wanted a Black Pub Style table for this "Breakfast Nook" area, which is at the end of my Kitchen right before you enter my Studio. I have 3 of these Bar Stools that my Brother had given me and I LOVE them! I had looked on Craigslist for something like this.
But everything on Craigslist was a bit more then I wanted to spend. Then right after I moved into the house, I got a FreeCycle email stating a Black Pub Style Table would be left near the garbage can of some Apt. complex 4 towns away at 6 AM! I immediately emailed the person and told them I could come RIGHT NOW! Nope, gotta wait for the AM...sorry I was not buying it. So I waited.
Then of course I joined up on this Challenge and can't buy anything. Recently, I received another email regarding a Pub Style Table. The email said it was Brown, Square and a little beat up. I responded that I would like to come take a look at it. When I arrived at the house, it was on the curb, disassembled waiting for me. So I got a Pub Style Table...YEAH! Not at all like the one that I really wanted, but what do ya want for FREE!! That is right the email came in from FreeCyle again and was in MY town! So I am definitely within the Challenge guidelines!
I am thinking I will refinish it this Summer and paint it Black. Then if a Round one ever becomes available...I will FreeCycle this one and take the Round one, but for now I am happy with this table. Thanks FreeCyclers!!
