This flea market table leads a double life--one as an elegant writing table and the other as a child's desk. A missing leaf and dings and dents led it to be sold for $120; a small price for its value. To update an extendable table like this one, simply remove the leaf mechanics underneath. Then attach each table to the wall with screws and L-brackets, and finish them off with glass for an elegant look, or fit one with a fabric skirt.
