My latest thrifted find...

My latest thrifted find...A solid wood kitchen set...this thing is heavy...not IKEA...(not bashing IKEA...we all know that's my happy place...p.s. their 2014 catalog came online yesterday...yeah!  Google it...pure inspiration)....back to my find...did I mention that its solid...heavy...must have come out of a school or industrial setting...then again, it shows very little wear and tear...besides the table top...which I quickly sanded...and will poly later today...and just look at those chairs...you know I'm going to go crazy recovering those seats...probably changing them with the seasons...lol.

It's pretty small...barley holds two dinner plates...which the salesman at the Army made sure to point out to me..."thanks for pointing that out Sir...UGH!"  To which I quickly responded..."yep, it's perfect for all my intimate candle light dinners just for two."  Yeah...he went back to work after that comment.  Sigh.

Anywho...How much did it cost...?  Don't ask, you won't believe me anyway...lets just say, they paid me to take it away...So, I couldn't help but help them out.  FYI...I think my Army is under new management...prices have been slashed...at one point the prices were crazy...Ethan Allen crazy.

Enjoy your weekend!  Thanks for reading.




See. Just a few scratches...I easily sanded those out...I may put wheels on it...and use it all around the kitchen as an extra workstation...but, then again...adding wheels may raise the table too high.  We'll see.
