I need to answer this question by tomorrow to take advantage of their no-sales-tax sale. So if you have an opinion, lemme know!
Today I saw a dining table at Therapy SF that I fell in love with. It also happened to be a great deal. "Make no mistake," I told Garry. "That table is a great deal." It was a solid wood square slab with rounded corners and a metalwork base kind of like the Eames Eiffel chair. It was $150 down from $300, and with no sales tax. Even at IKEA, a piece-of-crap dining table set costs $100 or more. And a single Eames Eiffel chair from DWRcosts $250! So I consider this a very good buy.
The only thing is, I don't know if I can fit it in my new apartment. It's not big, but my apt is v. v. small.
Then, I was poking around archived posts at Design Sponge and saw this totally awesome DIY project that actually looks kind of easy: an old door + pretty paper or paint + table legs = beautiful large dining table. It has a totally different feel to it, but I think the idea is absolutely brilliant -- check out the full DIY document. What to do!?
