The Sioux City Journal from 1954! Small story, but I love stories behind pieces. A couple of years ago my mother-in-law and I were in Iowa going to an estate sale she had heard about. Out in the middle of no where stood this gorgeous old farmhouse! White with flowers everywhere! There were 2 boxes of canning jars for $2 each box! I couldn't pass them up! Anyways, they sat in my closet for close to a year now and I decided I was going to need them for my wedding. So I took out all of the jars to clean them up and I noticed dirty yellow looking newspaper at the bottom of the box. This was the paper! It was VERY brittle and falling apart every where I touched it but I have kept it for the last 6 months trying to figure out what I was going to do with it. I couldn't bring myself to through it away! So this is what I finally came up with almost 2 years later from buying those boxes of canning jars.
I hope you enjoy. I loved creating this table. It just made me giddy! ;)
