A new kitchen table

Rachel and I wanted to put a round kitchen table in our breakfast area. We were originally thinking a white Tulip table like this:

But then we started thinking about all of the different shades of white we might have in the kitchen, from the fridge to the cabinets to the tile, to this table. 

So we decided to find a round table we could paint white and then paint the chairs to match, so at least something would match.

A quick Craigslist search discovered this:

I emailed the lady and 2 hours later it was ours! The base (not shown above) is very ornate. We're going to paint the table white-ish and sell the chairs back on Craigslist.

When we got the table home, we noticed it was a little short, 26 inches. So, I sawed off the table top from the base, I will pick up a spacer of some sort at Home Depot tomorrow and raise it 3 inches.

After, this gets heightened and painted a nice crisp white, we think it's going to look awesome, and a perfect candidate to submit to Design Sponge's Before and Afters
