We'd been thinking about replacing our wobbly, tippy old dining table for years but never cared enough to really go looking. And then: "I found it!" the Lovely and Talented Cheryl Degroot announced.
A nice old solid oak dining table in perfect condition with two extra leaves at Goodwill. DG rightly prides herself as the queen of thrift store bargain hunters, but this one surpassed even her high standards for low prices.
"Nineteen-ninety-five! I only hope it's still there." It was and we got it. It was so heavy that we had to recruit our neighbors to help us get it from the car into the house. Which worked out all around because they wanted our old one, wobbles and all, for their patio.
In this week's FfT Nance and I talk tables, from wire spools to hand crafted custom jobs, old and new, fancy and cheap. Have a seat.
