A wooden table so dark it’s nearly black stands in the corner of a Mattituck shop.
The table’s body and legs are very thick but still classic looking -— sort of in the British colonial style. At about two feet by three feet, it’s not very wide, but it’s nearly four feet high, making its use and origins quite the mystery.
But this table with an unknown past will soon be reborn as something else.
“That piece, I haven’t decided what I’m going to do to it yet,” says Joanne Paluck, owner of Repurpose Project, a new store on Pike Street.
