The map-topped side table

This past weekend I had my booth set up at Nellie’s Barn Sale in Roscoe, Illinois. And while I was there I saw this vendor (Pork Belly Vintage) who had all sorts of cute pieces, very reasonably-priced. One of her end tables featured a decoupaged Chicago-area aviation map.

Well, two of my brothers are in the aviation industry, my father is a pilot and work for the FAA, and my grandfather was a pilot from before it was even licensed. This just had to come home with me!

I felt like this would add a special bit of whimsy to our home, so I loaded it in the truck. These are the types of things I really enjoy finding, functional pieces which bring a story into our home.
