I really like these old chrome-legged dinette sets. We had a yellow set (below -table only) that was a little plainer in style than the one above. I am on the left wearing my yellow and red floral calico dress that I mentioned in my post on Oct.26th of last year.
This great one was in David and Amy Butler's old kitchen, which was featured in Country Living magazine in 1999. I love the floor, too. Mama Brook over at Frisk The Frigidaire found a very similar table the other day. Lucky girl!
And this one, below, is ours. I got it in 1986, and it has served me well all these years. I wanted it because the chairs are red, but the table top is dark gray. You can see that I usually cover it up with a vintage tablecloth! One of our kitty's favorite places to be is on that red Cosco step stool you see next to the table. In fact, he's there right now.
I must admit, however that the table I really want is an enamel topped table with painted base and legs and a red and white design on the top - like some that Luke had in his diner on Gilmore Girls. If I can ever get one, I'd love to use my gray table in the basement as a work table. We will see.
