Terry and I were looking very casually at new dining room tables, not anything of a big rush and certainly not anything with a big budget. We just liked the idea of updating our style. The dining room table we previously had was Terry's that he's had for many many years. It was a beautiful table, but we thought with the dining room space that we have, it may be nice to have a square or rectangular table instead of the round. Terry, with his sleuth-like Craigslist skills, found a great table at a great price for what we were looking for. We had to drive to the other side of St. Louis to get it, but it was worth the drive (well, other than the car smelling of curry the entire ride home). When we got the table home, I snapped a quick picture of it, but it is not temporarily residing in the front corner bedroom until the floors are finished in the dining room. We (Terry) are also going to sand and re-stain the wood a darker color, somewhere around a mocha or a little darker I think.
