Anyway, the set includes a solid wood table with three leaves to make it nice and long, eight chairs (cane backing with white vinyl seats), and the original pad (and pads for the leaves) to protect the table during special dinners. Wow! All in excellent shape!
The top is why we bought the thing in the first place. LOOK AT THIS! The top pops up, the front hinge releases to show up a vintage mini bar! The original glassware is included. Six rocks glasses, six highball glasses, and six shot glasses! I LOVE it. There are two cubbyholes in the back corners where you can stow away traditionally shaped liquor bottles. WOW!
We got it for an absurdly low price and we love it! (note: Minky is on the right side in the gold box. It’s a can opener that has red beads for eyes and a “mink” coat! I got him at an antique shop about a decade ago. I LOVE HIM.)
I’ve had a couple requests to see the headboard all done and in action! Here it is.
The bedroom is not exactly where I want it to be yet but can you see it? Can you feel the decadence? That spread’s our thin summer throw that basically protects the nicer blanket underneath from all the cat hair. So that’s not really part of the look I’m going for.
It’s starting to look like it could be part of the set from Moulin Rouge. That’s what I’m telling myself.
As a refresher, check out the gallery to see how it looked when we found it behind our apartment.
