After Mom passed away last year we had to decide what to do with all her stuff. To many memories attached to a lot of the items, but out of everything nobody wanted the old dining room table. She purchased the table about 1942, when she moved into the house, and at that time it was just an old piece of furniture. But it was multi purpose, besides holiday dinners, it also was a place to do homework, write letters and Christmas cards, play ping pong and other games, and change diapers!! I was really surprised when nobody else wanted it, so I told my brother to put in storage and I'd pick it up when I was up there this summer. I took it apart and hauled it back home to Florida. It had the old, dark black stain finish that covered up all the color and grain in the wood, so when I got home I dropped it off to be refinished. I picked up a set of antique cane seat chairs to go with it. The chairs date from 1875. The antique dealer told me the table is also Victorian, so they are a good match. The table also has three leaves. Anyhow, here it is!
