Curbside treasure, refinished….

I hope everyone had a great weekend and Happy Mother’s Day.  I was able to re-finish this little table.  It was one of the items I found on a random curbside treasure find.  I’m not sure if it’s an old typewriter table or a doctors table? As you can see in the pictures, it has wheels, with locks and flaps on the end.  Regardless of its original use, I like it.  It was dirty, with chipped paint and a lot of glass rings on top.  I couldn’t wait to hit it with my sander and see what the grain of the wood looked like.  I originally thought I was going to remove all of the black paint.  But, as I sanded I really liked the look of the blended paint and wood so I left it.  When I finished sanding, I applied a natural oak stain.  I’m really pleased with the results and it turned out to be a perfect end table in my living room.  At least for now.  I tend to move furniture around a lot.  Does anyone else?  

What items have you turned from trash to treasure?  Does anyone have a clue to what kind of table that actually is?
