In the 70's when my folks built our house in WVa my mom saw an add for this beautiful butcher block table that was perfect for our new kitchen. I believe my dad had to travel to another state to get it. It was our family table my entire youth. I have eaten literally thousands of meals off it's warm smooth surface. It was relegated to storage when there was no longer a need for seating for 5 in the kitchen.
When Zach and I bought our house my parents gave it to us. It has long been a perfect center to all the shared meals with our freinds and family.
We have however never had matching chairs. Today we are moving on up to the eastside my friends. I found the perfect chairs at a very practical price. I like it like that.
Now all we need are some dinner guests.
