Scavenger Hunt #56? Late Again

This is our diningroom table, which is actually an extension of the kitchen.  It's a 1920's Sears's catalog diningroom set which my dad bought for my ex and me when we were first married and refinished it.   It is precious to me.  My BF and I are going to re-upholster (sp) the chairs this summer.  They were done 20 some years ago.

I also want to do hardwood floors but my budget isn't cooperating right now.  I restored the livingroom but there isn't hardwood beneath this....so a goal someday.

LOL...on the floor in the back is courtesy of Mocha, the cat.  My battery was dying in my camera and, of course, she coughed up a hairball right before I snapped.

LOL....your lucky day.  I had enough juice in the battery to get a pic of my china closet.  Just love all the little bric-a-brac they used to use.  They guy who owned the house before me loved wood but at least it's real solid oak or cherry wood on the walls and only on the one wall.

So how hard is it to heep your bric-a-brac from becoming broke-a brac with the critters?

The table I have in my kitchen was the table I grew up with!!! I inherited it when my parents divorced and sold the house... I cherish it and would never part with it!! The chairs that came with the table were in bad shape so when my grand mother passed away I got the chairs she had just brought not long before she passed away. So the whole set is very sentimental!!! http://journals.aol.com/shayshaydc/Golfaholic
