We have been searching for something to replace it for almost 3 years. And now that Anna is taking all of her bedroom furniture, we had to get another set. Yeah, reread that cuz it didn't make sense. ;p We have been using Anna's desk chair as a replacement. How's that for cheap?
And OMG, some people are crazy. We have been going to estate sales trying to find a replacement table and chairs. One guy was selling a table for over $500 and it was in worse shape than our old table. It had a gouge in it the size of my palm. REALLY??
Our old table and chairs was the first piece of furniture that Den and I bought together. I'm not the sort that keeps things but I made him save the table and chairs. I'm hoping that one day we can have two children's table and chairs made out of it for grandkids. No, that wasn't an announcement. If that was an announcement, I would have wanted you to use the table as firewood and burn me at the stake.
Getting an oak table into the rafters of the garage was a feat in itself. The brackets on the ladder bent out because the weight was too great. And no, I wasn't the one on the ladder. We got it up there with a bunch of grunting. I'm waiting for the roof to cave in. Any bets?
