The Table

Yesterday the refinisher called and gave me an estimate for the cost of repairing and refinishing my dining room table.  He recommended stripping the whole table, not just the top, and it needs a lot of regluing where boards are separating.  That said, he said it was a wonderful table, and when it is restored it will be amazing.  So, the cost.  He is estimating just over $2K and asked for $1K to begin, the balance upon finishing.  I put the $1K on my Discover card, even though I have the cash.  I want to get the cash back reward. 

He said it would be 4 to 6 weeks to finish the stripping and gluing, and at that time I will take in a chair so he can match the stain.  I'm not sure how much longer it will be after that.

While the table is gone, I want to send my carpet plus a runner out for cleaning.  Last time, when I sent my other rug and runner, it was $390.  It will probably be more now.  We'll see.  I'm going to wait till after my Michigan trip to make the arrangements.  One day at a time.

    I'm sure your table will be amazing when he gets done. I really enjoy using old furniture and often think of what went on around an older table and how it had been used.
