Facebook Marketplace Table Find

Hello everyone, I hope your week is off to a great start, today I’m sharing a Facebook Marketplace table find. In a word, I love all things French in our home and décor.

How I Found my French Table?

I bought the French table I was wanting from Facebook Marketplace. As a rule, Facebook Marketplace in our area for example, doesn’t ordinarily have gems like this table. So spotting this Facebook Marketplace table find made my heart skip a beat and I reached out to the seller.

The seller was asking $40 so I tried $35 and she accepted. My husband took his mask to pick up the table.

I found this this thrifted beauty that received hard work and a pretty update that may interest and inspire you.

The table is the finishing touch to our great room.  The gilding and French touches add charm and character.

This piece was a simple gilded thrifted find that also was a great addition!

In the meantime, for this price I thought painting was in the cards. That was disappointing, I love old French tables.

After John brought my Facebook Marketplace table find home he happily mentioned the table is in great shape except for one hinge. Once fixed the doors closed.

In the meantime, I inspected the table and it didn’t need painting. Having the gilding intact and the wire for each door section perfect is important.

It only needed a good cleaning. A few scratches needed fixing.

The Technique Used to Fix the Scratches

I fixed the scratches with a simple process using a 120 grit sanding sponge and a little water. Lightly sanding removed the scratches.

Have you found any pieces on Facebook Marketplace or thrifting that finished a room in your home? If you have let me know what you found.

  1. This is a very lovely piece, I can certainly understand why you are thrilled! I too adore French Country decor and at one time we had a home that was this design. I miss it.

  2. You scored on this pretty french table. I have found treasures on Mkt Place too. Last 2 finds was 2 Pastry Tables…1 from France. I love French decor.

  3. Wow, Cindy, such a beautiful find! I love this table so much and how you have it styled too. It’s such a treasure and perfect for the space. Hugs, CoCo

  4. So pretty – and, lucky you, very little work required! Somehow, I always find the wrecks! LOL

  5. That table is gorgeous – what a great find! It goes perfectly in your home. You got a great price on it, too.

  6. Love your “new” French table, Cindy!! What a lovely find… Yes, I did find one thing looking but now that I think about it, it wasn’t on FB Marketplace but Craig’s List – Dallas. The French style tall library/tea table I am currently using as an end table was found online. I loved it at first site, and though I believe the oak top was married to the walnut bottom (probably to replace a severely damaged top), it is still beautiful to me.

    Enjoy your new table, it is stunning!
    Barb 🙂
