Vintage Medical Table – Before & After.


This is why you ALWAYS go in the basement at an estate sale… (Even if the basement is scary!!) This table was hidden in a corner of the world's darkest, dirtiest basement... But a few hours later after going over it with the grinder to strip the paint, and a few coats of glossy paint, it might be the best $10 I ever spent.

I love anything vintage, salvaged, old, or interesting... (My husband says I only like broken things.)

Instead of paint stripper, my husband took the grinder to it. It was WAY faster and worked great.

    When my ex would say something a little mean, like "My husband says I only like broken things", I would say, "Yes darling, that's why I chose you" !!!!!

    Linda, that's great! My ex would say "You can never take a joke!" My reply "I took you, didn't I?" Booyah! ;)
