Lately, we have been entertaining, a lot. Our little kitchen table really can only accommodate five people comfortably. I’m not in love with it because the leaves it has tend to bend down a little and that just makes me nervous that one day they will break and everything on top of it will fall down and break too. I’ve been scouring Craigslist for a good cheap table that could seat 6 plus people, with an extendable leaf, and that was an antique. New furniture just doesn’t last anymore. So, I found this Duncan Phyfe table for $40! That’s a day at the beauty salon, a pair of shoes, a cute shirt. But this table is going to last way longer than all those other things.
We picked her up in Flushing, and now she stands in all her glory in our apartment, smack dab in the entryway. I’m not sure if this will be her permanent home. The listing said it sits 6-8 but it would have to be 8 small chairs. Six people is doable. She needs a lot of work. The entire top is worn, scratched, and has pen marks all over it. It will be a ton of sanding, not something I’m sure I want to do inside our apartment. Till then, I’ll put a table cloth over it. Just it time because we are having another dinner party this Saturday!
