It was the last carboot sale before winter. Too windy to have a wander round the stalls, it was rather a quick run across the market. Suddenly, something caught my eye. It was a pretty old, small, tatty coffee table. Solid oak wood, though. And a price... one pound! I didn't plan to turn it into anything different than a new coffee table, but when my daughter saw it, I knew I'll paint another piece of children's furniture.
