My $35 Milo Baughman Console
Several years ago, I posted about finding a chrome and burled wood console table at a thrift store for $35. Some helpful people responded and suggested it could be a Milo Baughman. I checked 1st dibs and, lo and behold, there was the exact table--attributed to Milo Baughman--and listed for over $3K. So I decided not to use it as a tv stand! Instead I threw a blanket over it and tucked it away in the basement. I'm home today in a blizzard and have decided to move it upstairs and use it behind my sofa. Essentially hiding the whole thing--but it will be functional and I'll enjoy seeing the burl. It won't work in all its full MCM glory in my home. And I'm tired of procrastinating over what to do with it!
