Not sure about dining table we bought!
February 3, 2013
My husband and I bought a dining table, side board (I love the side board) and bench from reclaimed wood from Northern India. It is so different from what I am used to - and because it is reclaimed wood from a variety of places - it has a great variety of colors within the table - from green, to rust, to blue. In some light - it looks fantastic - and in others - I worry that it just looks paint splattered. (It has a lacquer on it to protect it.) My problem is that none of my plates, cutlery etc. match - and for elegant dinners - I would have to cover it with a table cloth in order to use my grandmother's china and sterling. Should I take it back - or buy all new dishes and flatware? I think I am just afraid of how different it is now that it is in our Napa house. Thoughts??
