Yesterday I got my new, old kitchen table! We have an antique shop here in our town and although for the most part I don't purchase from it, (tad expensive), every now and then the guy will give me a good deal on an item I inquire about.
I went in a few weeks ago and asked him... "Corky, I need a round, oak table for my kitchen. It has to be sturdy enough to be able to kneed dough on it, do you have one?" Then we proceeded to haggle away at a price. We finally came to an agreement and he showed me what he had. Then they cleaned it up (you should see his shop! LOADS of stuff EVERYWHERE! Some in great condition and others in need of some serious love. The one he showed me needed some lovin'. And boy did they give it that cuz it looks wonderful now! Anyhow, it is now in my kitchen looking totally smashing!
So now.... I'm in the market for some new chairs. But for now, I'll just recover the two that I have and hopefully I'll find two more somewhere soon. Hmmmm, I think I may stain the chairs a little darker as well.
Fun, fun, fun! I just love my new old table! ;-)
