Lic? Funny title to a post huh?
It's short  for Little Industrial Cart

I found it during my lunch break today at the ReStore.
I walked past it once, then again, then one more time.
Then I lifted up the little sides to make the tabletop larger. Then I glanced at the blueish patina. Then I looked over the adorable little casters. Then I saw the price tag. ($10) Then I smiled. Then I finished walking throught the store while thinking about LIC the whole time, worrying that someone else spied it, and was taking it up to the check out.

So I ran, skipped, shuffled, , walked briskly, back to LIC snatched it up, and checked out.

Now, what to do with it?
Should I use it in the playroom as a portable desk?
Use it as a snack tray for meals on the go?
Use it for surfing the web on the laptop?
Put it in my Etsy Shop when I open it this weekend?
Take it to the local consignment store and see how much it sells for?

So many decisions..what would you do?

  1. Its so cute. I would try it in different places,probably as a side table. Nothing stays put in my home very long because I like change.
    Its great to find something on your lunch break!
    Makes ones day so much better :)

  2. That's a fabulous typewriter table. It would make a great bedside table or end table in a family room, an accent table with a vignette on top. So many uses. You could spray paint it a favorite color if it needs it. I have sold a couple of this type of metal table in my shop because they are fun and unique. I'd vote to keep it and have fun with it in your home.

  3. great little table! Castors mean that it is not supposed to stay in one place. So use it for all of the above!

  4. Love it! Try it out in your house and if it doesn't work sell it! Thanks for participating in my Would You Buy It links party!

  5. You've inspired me to try the ReStore in the nearby town; I need a small table to fit on one side of a bed ...the "narrow side" our spare bedroom. Tiny room and we just switched out the full size for a queen size bed. ;-)
