New to me table

merrygardenerJanuary 25, 2014

I'm so very excited! I bought our current dining table about 17 years ago and have never liked it. I found this Danish teak table (with two hidden leaves and 6 chairs) at an estate sale today and the wood (especially the details around the sides) is beautiful! Tell me $500 is a good buy!

Now I need to stash it in my neighbor's garage until I Craigslist mine away.

Good find for you! I love the table, and the wood looks nice to me. Seems like a reasonable price, is it in nice condition?

I LOVE it. It's fantastic. And yes, $500 is a fabulous price. While you are waiting for yours to sell, I'd check the joints and tighten everything up. Enjoy!

Great buy. Beautiful table and chairs.
That was a steal.

Beautiful! Those chairs look very comfortable as well. I think you did very well for $500--you'd have to pay close to that for one really good quality chair built today!

Marvelous find! Looks beautiful! Hope yours sells quickly, so you can move this one in and start enjoying it.

Good to hear! It is in excellent condition, but the chairs will likely be reupholstered in a bit (to suit my taste- they aren't too worn or uncomfortable). I was wishing the table legs had a more mid-century feel, but now my wheelchair using daughter won't crash into the table leg at every approach; our current table bears those scars!
In the marriage counseling department, my husband has no idea about the table (and usually thinks we don't "need" new or different furniture in the home). I have some heavy lifting to do tomorrow while he's away! It just works better if I just make the change rather than negotiate. :)

Love it-- and I hope you got the china cabinet in the photo as well!

merrygardner - I have the same table (different chairs), purchased in 1981. Mine is solid teak so only stores one leaf and the other has to live in the closet. It was our first *couple* purchase, even before we were married. Enjoy it - it's a great set.
