I’ve been hunting craig’s list for months waiting for someone to post an affordable, good looking, mid-century dining room set and it finally happened. I had never realized how torturous it was going to be to have to decide on a table within hours of seeing the listing. Things move so fast on that internet machine that you have to choose to buy something asap or it might be gone asap. This was not the table of my dreams, but fit a lot of my criteria, and now that I have it home I’m thinking it’s pretty cool.
The man I purchased the table from turned out to be the original owner. He has had the set since the early 60′s, and it seemed like he was having a hard time parting with it.
The cushions are covered in an ugly floral fabric. I’ll have to add recovering my new chairs to my to do list..
