Demi Lune Table and Friday Flea Market Finds!

I was walking around the Flea market on Friday and found nothing, big fat ZERO! Until I rounded the last aisle of potential goodies.....crap in other peoples world...not in mine, not in yours.
This is what I found...
Free for me! Seems the vendor left his crap goodies behind because it was so hot!
Yup, has some major veneer issues that I plan on just yanking off. See I started already.
                                                                              

Cute 5 dollar nightstand...woo hoo! Love redoing nightstands!

Accent table which I think I just may mosaic. It's been way too long!

And lastly this very cool, carved demi lune table. The vendor wanted $15 for this and $10 for the one above. I offered, $20 for both...accepted! Ohhh I feel like I am an on American pickers sometimes. LOVE that show!!
Here's what I did w/ the demi lune. I painted it blue/gray and then glazed it. How could you not glaze this w/the beautiful carved leaf motif, right?
Unglazed and someone's house is a wreck. So much for staging, ha! This looks way grayer than it is.

Glazed...still not showing its true color....stupid camera :)







Well, it's American Pickers time so time for me to park it on the couch! If you've never checked that show out, you must....9:00 Central time on the History Channel!
