Retro Flair

We’ve been looking for a 50’s style dining table for a while and yesterday I finally came across this beauty on Craigslist.  Well, it’s a beauty now, after several hours of cleaning.  It was so worth it though.

This is just another example of how you can find “the right” piece for your home without spending a lot of money or contributing to the cycle of rampant consumption.  The key is patience and knowing exactly what you want and not settling until you find that perfect piece.  It might take longer than you’d like, but in the end you and the planet will be happier.

Happy hunting!
