I was on the hunt for the perfect dining room table for a long time… With my hubby when you buy something, you can never throw it out, however i was unquestionably anxious about buying a table plus then regretting it. So I hunted around online for years plus never found anything I liked, and for years the two of us ate our breakfast using our living room ottoman. I measured my space plus realized I wanted a dining room table that was only a four foot square. I also wanted it to be of wood that matched my wood ceiling, and that should not be difficult to find right? Wrong, and apparently if you want a small wooden table, it is going to be made of particle board, then you needed a big banquet table if you wanted something made nice. I ended up looking at a locale that does custom furniture. I felt it was a bit snobbish of me. I also thought I would end up spending so much more money. In the end, the custom table was cheaper than what I was looking at online. The guy made it out of a salvageed heart pine plus it matched my ceiling perfectly, people actually know it is the same wood. The table fits my space perfectly plus is a statement piece, however everyone always remarks on my table. It was overpriced however totally worth it. It cleans up like a dream plus fits the theme of my house perfectly, and my only complaint is that it made the rest of my furniture look like garbage.
