Fine Dining: The Results of our Custom Craigslist Dining Room Table Find

Way back when, I regaled you with tales of finding our dream dining room table — custom made, from a dude on Craigslist, for just $400. Then, I never even followed up. Well, wait no more: I present to you, our much-loved, one-of-a-kind, budget-but-you’d-never-know-it, dining room table.

You just never know what to expect with Craigslist, but we paid him $100 up front for materials, and paid the rest when he delivered — yes, he DELIVERED the table — a few weeks later.

I love the stain he used, and he put lots of imperfections in the piece for an antique, rustic look, just as requested.
