We are starting to go through my parent's house. Unfortunately we all have lots of stuff and don't really need anything. But I wanted a piece of furniture of my Mom's and one of my Dad's. This is the piece that reminds me of Mom. Both ends of this table fold down. 4 folding chairs fold and slide into the middle section. When the whole thing is folded down it only takes up 11"x34"x29" inches. Perfect for extra dining in a small space. The interesting thing is that this piece looks completely at home here in the condo. I remember this piece in our house in the 60s... funny how furniture and places that were built at the same time look at home together.
Growing up it was my job to set this table at holidays with the linens and good dishes etc. So it is very nice to have this piece. It would make my Mom happy to know it will live on in our new place.
