The whole ensemble
For now, I chose to use it here. Ideally, it would be used for a small square tabletop. Since I don't have one of those presently, and since the cover of this table had approximately 2 inches of dust covering it (Thank you for not pointing that out when you came Elizabeth!), I thought I would use it here. Now that I am typing...this whole table cost me nary $5.00 (excluding the lamp that I bought BRAND NEW at my all-time favorite store, Kirklands, for $9.99) Wanna see the breakdown?
Table...yard sale... $2.00
Under 'skirt'-literally...LONG story: this was a skirt that was given as a gift to my mother by my well travelled Uncle. He bought it off a lady he saw on the street crocheting it. I think in Africa or something like that. Short Story: Free
Most recent overskirt: sham and valances were under .50cents
Dutch shoe: yard sale .25 cents
Candle holder: gift
Picture Frame: $1.00 at dollar store.
Making today's total: $3.75!!!
