Building a table leaf or buy a pre-made?
Hello. I'm in a quandary. I'm hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas in our new home this year for our parents, and my table is not big enough. I just purchased two captains chairs so that I have more seating (thank you Beverly for your info on those!) but I need help as to what to do on the table. I've looked online and found that you can purchase "blanks" and sand them down and stain them, or should I just purchase some lumber and attempt it on my own? Purchasing a new table isn't in the budget right now.
Has anyone ever attempted this, or done this? I figure if all goes south I can just throw a table cloth on it and be done with it.
Here is my dining room. Usually the six chairs are around the table, but I put the two captains chairs I purchased at the ends just for the look at the moment, and the other two (once the table is extended) will go on the sides with the others.
