    Oh dear!! I can't even see any metal through the rust.

    Someone will buy it thinking "great side table".
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    I live in the south and these bases are seen in about every rural yard with flower pots on them or used for potting shed table.
    Got fabric?

    Did you notice the name of the seller? Bet they're one of those "Storage Wars - Texas" type buyers.

    I bought one at auction for a friend, $5. Our agreement was that she wanted the base and I could have everything else. I took what was left of the cabinet apart, kept the hardware and the contents of the drawers, which included some useful notions and a brand new pair of Gingher scissors still in the package. I really made out on that deal.

    My SIL just bought a cleaned up, painted, with a faux marble top at Round Top Texas antique show for $40. I e-mailed the seller and told them their price is way too high!

    A lot of people watch those shows....American Pickers, Storage Wars .....etc.

    And think what they have is worth a fortune. If it was, it wouldn't be sitting in the yard gathering rust.

    Nope, can't find no gold! Couldn't pay me to take it!
    If a woman's work is never done....why start?

    Maybe I could sell them the twin to it that my hubby found many years ago in a room that had been walled off where we rented and gave the stand to my mil and fil painted ( there wasn't any rust ) and sanded top and both of my inlaws have pasted I now have it in my living room for a stand.There is no way i think that anyone would pay that kind of money for a bottom that has that much rust or not! They may belive that they have gold but if no one buys its still just an old rusted stand.

    It is actually Ft. Worth. Very different from Dallas.
