I hit the mother load last week at vinnes on whilst triangl-ing. This dining table and chair set was sitting there right at the front of the furniture section, I ran towards it JUST as someone was putting a sold sticker on it - for the princely sum of $165 for the lot, kill me now. I had to congratulate him on his fine purchase and asked if I could snap a pic, he was very obliging (unlike some others have been) and when his wife came along she was beside herself with excitement and we quickly started discussing how she was going to reupholster them. That is when a little shot of gold caught my eye. Just to the left of me was the MOST delicious brass dining table base I have ever seen (below), she was totally giving Ms. Wearstler. I yelled at the nearest guy 'give me a sold sticker, pronto!' I left the hexagonal smoky glass top (a little too 80's for my taste) and loaded her in my car. I am beside myself with joy for this find and cannot wait to get into a new place to put her to use. I am thinking of using the marble top to my tulip table. Watch this space to see her in situ in the not too distant future...
