Yes, I mean the table.
G`s parents have given each of the children a sentimental piece of furniture over the last few years. A long time ago, we said we wanted the heavy old table, but I often forgot about it because I always thought there would never be a time when it would get shipped from PA to OH.
Time passed. Lots of it.
Now a few weeks ago my husband drove to PA in a semi with one of his buddies to haul something else back to Ohio. Something ELSE they packed to bring along back was this huge old table. 🙂
She definitely belongs with us.
Her legs are splendid.
I ADORE things rich in history, and this table was G`s family`s table all their lives. And before that a farming family had it for 30 years.
I am looking for more history for it from my mother in law. Any news in interesting to me.
The top of it needs refinished. I plan to sand it off and restain it the color the legs are. Saving WORK and TIME and yes, also money. Plus, I love her the way she is.
Here is the box that holds all her leaves. Yes, they all need refinishing too. Like I said, the table is HUGE. If we were to put in all the leaves, I think it would reach across our dining room and living room. For now tablecloths cover a multitude of sins.
Winter project, you wait for me.
