it all started out like this, so we have been scouring places to find a new dining room table and chairs to replace the tiny one we had from our apartment days. i wanted to keep it under a certain amount and to also find something that b and i can refurbish together.
i spot some other people eying the table as well, so i just plop myself down on the chair and stake my claim. within a few minutes i was able to negotiate the price from $160 to $140 and this table and chairs were mine.
there are a few rough spots on the edges, but overall it's the color and style we want and it fits our space more nicely. so now our project table will just become scrap wood for other projects and a good education in refinishing.
