New to re-doing furniture, I answered a Craigslist ad without a photo for a coffee table that "looks like a surfboard." It was priced at " $5 OBO!! I made the trip out to the owner, purchased it for $5, and then checked it out. It was covered in a horrible red stain shellac, but this was relatively easy to remove and underneath was this lovely, warm rosewood. The legs had an interesting shape and and curved support design. I made a hefty profit, but I wish I still had the table--if only for inspiration. I also wish I know who made it and how. It was so much fun to bring it back to life.
