hi folks..just before christmas rose the landlady of the bull pub in price st very kindly gave me an unwanted cast iron pub table...to say i was delighted is an understatement..it was in need of some TLC after being left outside for a few years so i have done my best..its now safely stored in a dry place and i will be bringing it into the garden when the weather picks up...if you do read this rose once again thank you so much..i am made up..here are a few pics taken before i started on it and then the finished product...nearly forgot to say its made by james yates of birmingham..

That looks lovely Lyn - well done for making it look so good. I am sure it will get a lot of use once the good weather is here.

Beautiful Lyn. I bet it weighs a ton. You've got a lovely shine on that top, amazed that you've been able to get it looking so good after being outside for a long time. Viv.

Grand job Lyn. We were given a cast iron one from the Harbor last year with the lions heads on. I painted it but it is no where near as good as your's. Keep it at the van. Jean.
