NEW TABLE

We've acquired yet another "new" kitchen table! This came from my aunt's estate; she passed in January. My sister and cousin have been cleaning the house and this was the only item left that no one else wanted. I was so surprised because it was my aunt's husband's dad's, then they inherited it. My earliest recollection is of it being in the same dining room in the same house in the early 60's up until the present. So I have no idea how old it really is. Mister can't tell if it's mahogany or not, and it's about 54 inches across.

Obviously, Mister hasn't had time to put it together yet - where do I put all my clutter until then? LOL!

Lucky you! Aren't you glad no one else wanted it! I would be. :) Love the base.

Great that you rescued it and gave it a home. Too much history there to let it go. Show it again when it's put together. :)

I like your old round 54 inch pedestal table, always great to get a family piece of furniture
