It pays to wait, that is my motto. I have been wanting a round pedestal table for a long time. I thought it would fit the space better and I was right. I have been watching craigslist for almost 2 years, for you see I am tenacious! I set a price, a low price and wait. That is what I did for my beautiful antique tufted back sofa. I got it for $100, after waiting for a long time. She start off at $300 and slowly brought the price down. Interestingly enough, right after I called, she got flooded with calls.
Well this dining room table was the same thing. They started out at $200 and slowly dropped. I think the reasons both of these items did not sell is because they had horrible pictures, you could barely see the item. Well is pays to wait, when this table finally hit $20.00, yes, twenty dollars, I thought I could do that. It is not perfect, a little small. It does have two leaves but they are small too. The top is a bit dinged up. I may paint it white but actually I am loving it right now the way it is. I love the caster feet!!
I am still going to keep my eye out for a bigger pedestal table but for $20.00, I will have no problem reselling. So the motto of my story, is wait for what you really want, do not settle, do not pay too much. Just wait!!!
