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?


  1. The table looks as though it was meant for that lovely room! I am so intrigued by the story of your home! I do hope you will share more about it's history, and more photos of your decor as well! I will be following along here so as not to miss a post! Blessings! Amanda

  2. Top web site, I hadn't come across idlemendacity.blogspot.com earlier during my searches!
    Keep up the superb work!

  3. It is Camas....and NOT Camus...just thought you might like to know.

  4. Thank you, Barb. I actually do know that. You will note that I had it correct in the below section, but alas, even I do make an occasional typo. I will correct it pronto! Glad to see you still visit my blog. Hope you're fine and not real angry at me because of my typo.

  5. Yep, I still visit your blog and will always admire your talent.
