ALL Photos and TEXT Alana Flint
Hi Linda I have a few photos you may like. My Grandfather, Henry Lever (Ren) built this table. I recently had it refinished, because, as a rebellious teenager I painted it blue, then white (thickly, a little is good, more is better!). Needless to say, my Dad (Allan Lever) grounded me! The lamp on top of the table is the one my Grandmother (Caroline “Carrie”) used on the table. I had the lampshade recovered. The lamp still works and it has the original cord.
