Purchased: Table!

To our patient friends who have crowded around the too-small, not-that-sturdy dinning room table we've had for the past 8 years: something new!

I found this wonderful mid-century modern teak table on Craigslist Saturday night and bought it Sunday morning. Originally purchased in the 1950's, it came over from Denmark with the person who grew up eating on it as a child, sold to a Frenchman in the Castro and then to me. Perfect timing with the annual 1906 Earthquake blackout dinner coming up in April. With the two leaves on, it is a full ten feet long and will easily seat the 12+ we so often have for that dinner.

I'm going to need more chairs!

Yay! It looks a little bit like ours (although yours is a bit bigger) and I love it. Ours came with four chairs, and I've picked up a few more chairs thrifting that don't match but will mix in well.
