Table Talk!

I have long disliked my dining room table and chairs - it was a bit modern for our house and I bought it on a whim when we first moved here 3 years ago.

So I have been looking for a pine table that was both big enough and cheap enough to keep everybody in the house happy!

I won this on ebay his week.....

It needs a bit of work.....and it has been scrubbed and sprayed tonight to get rid of the remains of its previous owners dinner (yikes - I suppose it comes with the territory with vintage previously loved things??)

But look how lovely those legs are....


Be even better with a light colour paint on the legs and frame - distressed I thought. Then a good sanding and rewax on the top.....

We like this table...

But even in the sale its still nearly £500 more than ours cost!!!!

We still need chairs for it but I suppose I could raid our loft for a few of these......

Fantastic table, I have similar legs on my 80 yr old table and I'm going to paint them in LA white - well eventually when I get round to it!
