.....and look what I came home with!
It even has a leaf to go in the middle! We had been looking for something like this for several months. Our other set has been through 2 or 3 floods (ala lowlands of Houston), 2 or 3 recoverings(chairs), and we were just plain tired of it. A re-sale or antique/junk shop in our small town was going out of business and I bought this at lower than 1/2 price, without DH even being there! I brought 1/2 of it home (not enough room in the car) and took DH back so he could browse around also. After finding some books (mainly for GC), he encouraged me to also buy this, again at a sale price:
Of course I did not have that in mind when I suggested he leave his "man-cave" in the barn and come with me...... Looks like the previous owners put a wall panel in the back of the top portion. I plan to have DH take it off and have it open. To give you an idea of the size, I am 5' tall and cannot see into the top drawers at all.
Oh, BTW, does anyone have a good recipe for a loaf of bread? Guess what I forgot!
