    That is so cool! And it looks like a neat quilt block pattern on the table top.

    Beautiful table and chairs ,enjoy :-D Tip:Once you clean it , put rubber tips on chair and table legs before you ever use it in your house. Ask me how I know this! Little half circle cuts in the vinyl flooring we had at that time. :cry:

    I grew up eating on a table like that, though it was grey. My parents still have the table in the rafters in the garage. The chairs all died long ago.

    Is your kitchen theme red? My aunt's is. I never knew there were so many red things for a home until I saw her collection. Enjoy your find.

    Is your kitchen red? My DS has a blue set like this. My set that is 8 years old is falling apart. Maybe I need to find one like this :roll:

    Enjoy your new set.

    oh goodness, reminds me when i was little. we had a table with benches that folded down on each side.
    also remember having a washing machine with a ringer to "wring" out the wet clothes. my Mother was working then and had hired a "maid" to do our laundry. she got her hand caught in that thing!!! We were so poor, i can't believe she was able to hire someone to help out, but she did.
