Today, I purchased a beautiful dining set from an acquaintance in my apt. building. It is of dark wood, and came with 4 highback chairs and 1 table leaf. I polished it, then put 2 small glass lamps on it along with a cookie jar for a centerpiece. So far, I am very happy with it. Another acquaintance brought the table to my apt., installed the leaf, then tightened the chair legs and table legs. I paid him. It is nice to have nice furniture.
