I was on the hunt for the perfect kitchen table for a long time; With my partner when you buy something, you can never throw it out, then i was actually sad about buying a table & then regretting it, so I hunted around online for years & never found anything I liked, then for years the two of us ate our dinner using our home office ottoman.
I measured my space & realized I wanted a kitchen table that was only a four foot square. I also wanted it to be of wood that matched my wood ceiling, that shouldn’t be strenuous to find right? Wrong, and apparently if you want a small wooden table, it is going to be made of particle board, and you needed a immense banquet table if you wanted something made nice. I ended up looking at a venue 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 recovered heart pine & it matched my ceiling perfectly, however people really feel it is the same wood. The table fits my space perfectly & is a statement piece, however everyone constantly remarks on my table. It was lavish however totally worth it. It cleans up like a dream & fits the theme of my house perfectly! My only complaint is that it made the rest of my furniture look like garbage.
