Back in 2007, or maybe even 2006, I bought an antique table and two benches at great shop outside Toronto. What I loved was the size, this was a suitable size for a dining room and could fit 6 chairs around it, but it wasn't overly wide. At the time it was just what I needed for my loft. Here is how it looked when I got it.
Another great aspect of it was that the legs on the table fold in underneath, so with a hatchback it's quite easy to move. The benches also had metal legs that could fold in, making the entire 3 pieces very compact. What's funny is that the table was coated with old plastic mac tac in the image of wood - so it a wooden table covered with vinyl wallpaper! I was easily able to strip that layer off and found it was previously painted green and purple underneath that. With a hot air stripper I was able to get it back to the original surface. I touched up the benches and table with some minwax stain, over the years it has faded, but here are some places I've used it. It's definitely been a piece of furniture that has been versatile and well used over the years.
