I lost a total gem yesterday-- an oval, tapered leg, solid wood dining table at Goodwill for $25. It needed a coat of paint, but it was sturdy and the perfect size. Two seconds later, it was already being carted away to someone else's car! Dang.
Brand new dining tables are expensive... pretty ones, anyway. But I found a few that are both pretty and cheap.
That second one might find its way home to me!
