One Table Down

I wrote about my plan sell our dining room table.

Usually the dining room table is 72 inches long.

I sold it with the help of Craigslist to a young mother of twins.

We marked the legs just in case they were not interchangeable.

In addition to taking the leaves apart the legs were removed.

The table easily fit in the vehicle.

We packed it into her minivan.

I moved the kitchen table into the dining room.

I inserted two leaves to create an oval table.

So now we are without a kitchen table.

A rectangular table in the kitchen uses the space better.

Just kidding. Temporarily we’ll be using a metal folding table to see if that style and size works in the kitchen bump-out.

Are you doing something brave?

Welcome to The Glade, where the second generation of renovations has just begun and the mania about our home, music and other passions fill our days and nights. We’re Charlie and Jo in the music world; Mary Jo and Charles to family; and JoJo and Charlie to each other. We are renovating a midcentury house in a Victorian historic district where we want to live there the rest of our lives. It's a 1946 house located in Maryland. We were married in this house. Thus far (pre-blog) we refinished cabinets, added a window seat (still working on the cushion), rearranged a wall in the guest house due to sink/vanity replacement, planted a vegetable garden, and other quick and not-so-quick fixes. So this latest zeal for construction is the result of my having lived here since 1997 and feeling a need to ready the house for the next chapter and beyond.
