SOLD! Create a Child’s Play Center From Vintage End Tables!

It’s been a while since we’ve had vintage end tables (side tables) in stock; they really don’t sell well for us – or anyone! – any more.

But we have two now, and I thought it would be great to recycle this old craft idea.  Just turn those end tables into something useful and fun!  And the ones we have are even better than the one depicted above, as they each have a drawer to hold additional pieces!

Note: There’s even a marble top coffee table that goes with this set that seems like it would make a perfect additional surface for a child’s playtime!  Either leave as is, or cut the legs to bring the surface down a bit lower.

Condition:  They are in very good, solid condition but both have what appear to be old cigarette burns on the top (please see photos).  If you were to turn these into play centers for kids, those blemishes would be gone in a jiffy!  

Dimensions:   30″L x 20″W x 24″H. (The main surface is about 14″H.)  The drawers in each side table are about 1 1/2″ deep.

Side tables: Originally listed on another blog on this site for $40.00 for the pair, now just $15.00 each or $25.00 for the pair, plus Maine State Sales Tax of $1.38 for a total of $26.38.
Both side tables and the marble top coffee table: $50.00 for all (originally listed at $90.00 for the set). With Maine State Sales Tax of $2.75, that’s a total of $52.75.

Shipping & Delivery:  Shipping this set is not recommended because the cost to value ratio would be prohibitive: the marble alone is extraordinarily heavy and would have to go via a freight company.  Because of this, we are unable to deliver the coffee table; it takes two strong individuals to carry that marble.  Your best bet is to pick it up yourself… and bring a buddy for help!
