A Thing of Beauty

This bedside table looks exactly like one I bought at the Alameda Flea Market in the Bay Area.  I was helping my daughter decorate her first apartment and we found the table painted mint green.  Our intentions were to paint it white.  I've done many paint jobs on various pieces of furniture but what I had in store with this piece I had never encountered.  As I began to sand the piece, large strips of the paint began to fall off.  I essentially peeled the entire table.  Underneath it looked identical to this table.  It has a marble top and was only $75.  I keep returning to Alameda but have never found another deal like it!
