This is the perfect example of finding chairs and a table separately, but them being the perfect combination. I picked these chairs up several months ago. They're a lovely Federal style, with saber legs, and graceful lines. I wanted to wait for the perfect dining table with which to pair them. Last weekend I found that perfect dining table. Both the table and chairs are solid maple. I'd say they all date to about 1940 or so. The double pedestal on the table base is soooo pretty. I painted the chairs and table a rich black, sanded the table top, stained, and sealed it, and recovered the chairs. Wouldn't this be pretty in a breakfast nook or eat-in kitchen!
