I had been using a folding card table with folding chairs in the kitchen at The Barn and it worked just fine. But, I had been looking for a kitchenette set to use instead. I even asked…ok….I begged on FreeCycle for one and I didn’t get a single reply. Don wouldn’t even talk to me about buying a set. Men! Of all the things he buys via Craig’s List you would think he could look for a dinette set for me.
I was talking to Diane one day and she mentioned that she had a small Trestle table set taking up space in her garage. Let me tell you….I stopped her mid-sentence and POUNCED on her over the phone and begged. I probably scared her half to death. 🙂 She said as far as she was concerned I could have it but to let her double check with her DH to make sure he didn’t have plans for it.
About a week later, I had that wonderful set in my possession and it’s now in The Barn. I am so happy to have it. All it needs is a few friends sitting around it and enjoying a good time.
Beth had given me a box of vintage linens from an aunt’s estate several years ago. I have some of the pieces displayed in the library aka bathroom and on top of a vintage sewing machine table. I’m going to choose another one as a runner for the table.
We can use the card table and chairs for sewing days.
Yep, I’ve got great friends! Thanks so much, Diane! And thanks again Beth for the wonderful box of linens!
