The Table of my Dreams
My new table and chairs were the most expensive of my recent Craig's List purchases. However, I have no regrets!
My friend Reed helped me pick them up last night just before FHE. Seeing his full truck in the parking lot, someone in the ward thought it would be pretty funny if they took everything out of his truck and loaded it into their's and then dropped it all off at his house. Luckily, they decided that would be too much work, so I didn't have to go through having my brand new table stolen, albeit temporarily!
Like I mentioned yesterday, I really love the lines of the chairs. They're simple, but stylized.
Another bonus, the table folds out to become twice it's original size (Seats 10-12). The mechanisms are really well-crafted and slide ever so smoothly. :-)
I'm looking forward to reupholstering the cushions. In addition, some of the chairs' joints need to be tightened. I'll need to do a little research to learn how to do it right.
