More Frugal Photos
I hope it’s not too soon to be posting more photos from the famed and prestigious Non-Consumer Institute. Either way, here goes . . . .
A recent beet purchase came with such luscious foliage that I had to put them to good use. Beet greens, A.K.A. "swiss chard" are so beautiful, with their red veined goodness, it's almost a shame to cook them up rather than put them in a vase.
My neighbor recently put this table out in front of her house for free. The table top was scummed with black stuff, candle wax and what finish was left was in pretty bad shape. I scrubbed up the scum and wax, and then turned it over to my mother who lightly sanded the top and applied four coats of paste wax. It's not perfect, but it's lovely nonetheless.
I almost didn't bring the table home, but it had gams that just wouldn't quit. It's the Betty Grable of console tables!
