Thanks to my brother visiting last weekend, I have a new dining room table! He brought it down in his pick-up, assembled it for me, and helped me put it in its proper place. Nice brother, huh?
I have to say that now that it’s in its new home, it’s lookin’ mighty fine:
I have a proper dining room now! And the chairs fit the table perfectly…
I moved a white console table from my bedroom (you can see it in the photo below at right) into the dining roomâ€”it’s functioning as a placeholder for now for the sideboard/server I’m hoping to get down the road sometime. It’s nice to have another surface to put a lamp on for additional lighting.
Here’s a couple close-ups of the fancy split-pedestal legs of this Duncan Phyfe table that was originally my grandmother’s. I really dig those claw feet:
I love how the table looks with the skirted chairs. And my dad did an amazing job of refinishing the tabletopâ€”it looks shiny and new again, restored to its former glory!
Bringing this table back to life (to my life, specifically) has been a true family affair, so grateful thanks goes out to the fam from W&R. I LOVE my new table!!!
Maybe next year I could host Thanksgiving?
