Extra Large Dining Room Table. My first home with my first husband got me itching for some real furniture. We bought a new sofa at a clearance center with money from our wedding. But we didn't spring for the tables. In the basement of the house we rented on Myrtle Avenue, we found treasure-an abandoned solid cherry coffee table, a little worse for wear. This was my first experiment with refinishing furniture, and I amazed myself. After removing the fancy furniture hardware, stripping the damaged finish, and picking out a gorgeous natural stain, we lay a coat of satin polyurethane that turned that project into a work of art.
Extra Large Dining Room Table. My husband got the table I treasured in our divorce. As a response to that loss, I went furniture shopping, and what did I buy? A gorgeous rosewood coffee table with matching end tables. Its contemporary lines contrasted with the traditional one I left behind. That made sense. It was a new beginning.
