New table

Up till a week ago, we were still a 2 seater table for a family of 5. It was crowded, but I didn't want to spend the money for a table to sit us all. A table for 6 to 8 people is pretty expensive. Well anyway, I was taking the trash out and someone had left a table out by the dumpster. So I took it. I bought chairs that were on sale and some stain. It looked like this. With some sanding and elbow grease, some dark cherry oak stain and black stain, it now looks like this...... Pretty awesome for dumpster diving huh?

Looks wonderful. And all for the cost of the chairs, some stain and hard work. I hope you eat many happy meals at this table.
