Gate Leg Table
I spotted this beautiful, old gate leg table the other day in Camas, Washington when Gregory and I moseyed on up there just for the fun-of-it, since it's only a 25 minute drive or so. Today we went and got it. The price was beyond reasonable! I am ecstatic, because this beauty works perfectly in our 1888 Italianate house that was actually moved from one street in Oregon City (OR) in 1915 to the street it is now on. More on that another day, but understand that when it was moved, they added a bungalow era front, wrap porch and so it made this house a "married-up" one with two specific design eras. The house was put onto the National Historic Register back in 1979, by previous owners and so, it is a must that it not be changed one iota on the outside. We don't mind. We love our house and all of the fun things we furnish it with. We have early American, Victorian (mostly American), Eastlake, Queen Anne, Chippendale, Art Nouveau and so on. There are a considerable assortment of very primitive, early American items as well. Whatever we love tends to work beautifully for us. So thank you Camas Antiques Mall and One Girl in Pink for this, our latest acquisition. Isn't it fun?
