Kitchen Table Craigslist Find

I've been looking for a "new" kitchen table for a long time.  We bought this one from a garage sale before we were married and found the chairs at various thrift stores.  We only have 4 left, and they've been repainted several times so they're grimy and hard to clean.

We were toying with the options of a 6 vs. 8 person table, and also the possibilities of spending a few hundred to get something we liked vs. $100-200 for something acceptable (and generally swiped up quickly off Craigslist).

Well, I somehow found a $45 table and chairs!  It was grimy underneath and smelled a bit like cat.  One has a missing spindle and some cat scratches at the bottom.  But for $45 there was nothing to lose!
Old table...having to use metal folding chairs!

"New" table!

Yay for Craigslist!
