On my way home from work last night I decided to take a detour to Goodwill. I was there a week or so ago and saw a gorgeous silver platter for $18. Come on, Goodwill. $18? I’ve purchased furniture there for less than that. I was hoping it would still be there and marked down to something a little more reasonable (gosh I sound cheap). It was gone, but I did see this:
An 8 seater, double pedestal dining table. For $50. Solid wood.
My in-laws have a double pedestal dining table that is so lovely, and I’ve always wanted one of my own. This table needs some serious work, but that’s okay! We have a bit of experience when it comes to refinishing furniture.
Like this craigslist apothecary cabinet.
And our current dining table (left in the basement by the previous owners).
We’ll get around to refinishing the new table soon enough. The old one will be put aside until we enclose our screened in porch. The table will make for a nice casual dining space out there one day.
