My husband and I have been talking (read: complaining) about how small our table is. I brought it into the relationship and I was single when I bought it and it only seats 4, but not even very comfortably. So Ive been looking for one that we both agree on that we can afford, which isnt easy. This past weekend we headed to Nashville to waste some time browsing around at the antique malls. Down the first row of booths I spotted this.
Yes, a Heywood Wakefield table with 6 chairs! Amazingly I almost walked right past it. (Those with kids should know what I mean. Holding and soothing one, and trying to keep your eye on the other that wants to be independent and not hold hands.) I didnt walk past it though. I stopped my hubs and we had a lengthy discussion about if we could afford it and if we could, should we buy it. It was priced at $500 and we talked them down to $400. Im happy to say its currently on layaway and we will pick it up later this month! Needless to say, I will either be selling clothes and other assorted items to offset this purchase and/or selling the table we currently have. I almost want to keep it to use it for crafting but I could always buy a cheap card table for that. Plus, when do I ever have time for crafting! Pretty much never. I feel a little bad for buying something during a time we really cant afford it, but by the time we saved up for it, lets face it, that table would be gone. What do you think? Did I make a good decision?
