A Little History Lesson…
As Many Folks Know, Just Fine Tables has become known for its Handmade and Refinished Furniture Items. We started over 12 years ago with a few of those wonderful “Honey Do’s” when we lived on Lay Lake in Alabama. We were in need of a different dining table for our new home and my wife had started to look into restoring some old antique and used furniture items to sell at a nearby consignment store.
We built our first farm table for our dining area and used it for a few years. It was completely built from scratch with some nice pine planks and some deck posts for legs.
Our early-on refinishing adventure was and still is our biggest refinishing (and rebuild) job. It was a large antique mahogany buffet / sideboard that we purchased at an auction. As I recall we purchased it for about $25o and I know we sold it for $750 at that consignment store. [Humm… there just might be some $’s to be made in this kind of activity???]
Shortly thereafter, our Lay Lake next door neighbor decided on a bold and very gutsy move to open a consignment and thrift store in Pelham, AL. I say gutsy, as it was during the time when the economy was the worst in recent history. …Our neighbor asked if we would build some tables* and provide other consignment items for their new store. (OK, you guessed it. …Our first handmade farm table put into the neighbor’s new store was our dining room table.)
Since those humble beginnings, our neighbor’s business has grown and so has ours. Our neighbors have expanded their original store and have opened two others (one in Florida).
Please know that Just Fine Tables still offers many of our Handmade and Refinished Furniture at Encore Resales. AND, …We are giving serious consideration to expanding our offerings there. .. Seriously!
Just Fine Tables is currently located to Covington, Tennessee on our farm home. The move allows us to now accurately state that our Farm Tables are built on the farm! With the move and to expand our business, we offer some of our products locally at another consignment store, UPSCALE RESALE on the Courthouse Square in Covington. Here is the current front entrance to Upscale Resale.
FYI: You will find Just Fine Tables offerings displayed on the 2nd floor at Upscale Resale. Just go up the elevator and up the little hallway ramp and look right. You will see us there… and this is what you will 1st see as you enter.
Our Motto: “TABLES TO LOVE AND LAST!”
