It's for Sale...

My friend who was wanting to buy the dining table and chairs that I finished yesterday brought her husband around this morning to look at it before she bought it.  He sat at the table and said "Oh, I wanted something perfect, high gloss and spray painted". 


Umm... not happening in my workshop baby....(and not for $650 either).  Perhaps he's wanting something like this which retail for around $5000 for that table alone.  It's what I originally wanted but couldn't justify the expense and then I fell in love with vintage furniture anyway.


I think my friend and her husband will have some interesting discussions today as they want very different things in their furniture.


So if you are in Sydney and you like beautiful hand-painted vintage furniture that the wood has stood the test of time, then you're in the right place.


French style butterfly extension table with 4 chairs.  $650


Call me if you are interested.


Butterfly extension mechanism that works very well and saves storing the extension leaf elsewhere.


Dimensions:  90cm  wide, 136cm (4.5 ft) unextended and 183cm (6 ft) extended.


The white is a pale limed white (not pure bright white)


4 chairs with damask upholstery
