New Dining Room Table

We have a new dining room table now. My parents gave us their old dining room table that will work better in our space. Our former dining room table was from my grandparents. I had wanted that to have to start our family. The table served us well for a number of years, but it was time to let it go. I am keeping the Lazy Susan, though, which come to think of it was really why I wanted the table int he first place. I loved growing up around a table with one of those.

Dad helped me get the table over to the house. We had to first figure out how to disassemble it to bring it over. The table is really well made and has leaves that extend on either end. The way that mechanism works is deceptively simple and it took a little bit to get it all back together and working properly. Good thing we numbered every part. That is, except for the screws. We thought they were all one size, they were not. Not that it made much of a different but there were some longer than others. It all went back together nicely and now we have a new dining room table.
