I still like the table, just not in the entry hall and not in the guest bedroom. Luckily, the table is heavy. Its weight kept me from loading it in my car and bringing it to a consignment store. So, I put SuperSliders under it and pushed it behind the sofa in the family room as a temporary storage solution. Go figure - putting a sofa table behind a sofa.
I had thought it would not work in this casual area of our home. I am happy to say that I was wrong.
It's hard to imagine that the sofa was just "floating" in front of the shuttered windows before.
I feel like I got a free table!
I was also overjoyed to buy a Lane table to match our existing end table on eBay. I've been searching the site every so often for about two years for one. (We got the original end table and coffee table when we first got married. I'm kind of sentimentally attached to them.) This long room needed a second end table, but I didn't like the look of mismatched tables.
A few weeks ago, I found one. The seller shipped it to me via Greyhound bus. I'd never heard of shipping that way, but he explained that for such a heavy item, it was much more affordable. The closest Greyhound station called me when it arrived, and I picked it up.
Then the work began. The seller had described the wear on the top of the table as typical family usage. The family must have been a bunch of fraternity brothers. I should add that the damage definitely did not happen in transport. The seller had packed it like it was an extremely valuable antique. Anyway, after lots of sanding and some care, it now matches our original one.
So, I'm pretty much doing the happy dance all around the family room!
