We inherited a "less than pretty" dining table with three chairs from my sweet friend, Cherie who had acquired it with her current home. The condition was rough to say the least. Fast forward countless hours and about $100 in materials and we've got a brand new, gorgeous dining set that will seat 8!!!! Our old set no longer fit our family with seating for 6 so we are truly delighted with this hand me down! Thank you so much Cherie! I hope you don't want it back now!!!!
