Our New 50 Year Old Dining Table & Life Updates

 Oh, wow! It’s been more than a month since my last post. I must admit this was a very relaxing period!  And after a another visit to my endocrinologist i am now an a new pill, which after almost a month, seems to be working. This doctor believes that one of the excipients of my first medication was the problem. Probably an allergic reaction to one of them. I am a sensitive person with angry cells, like my allergist says it! But the big question is : which excipient was it? and how am i going to find out?

 My new medication has the same levothyroxine dose like the first one, but the excipients are only water and glycerine. The only serious problem is that my TSH almost doubled in the last 4 months, from 1.15 to 2.23 . Doctor said that since we want to have another baby, my TSH must be below 2.5 . We’ll see what happens!

 And now to our new dining table. My grandma had this for almost 50 years and now that she moved to a new house she no longer needs this. Ever since i was a child i liked this table so much! I called dibs and now it’s in our home! It’s a round, 112cm diameter, table but we added the 40cm wide extension to make it oval and a bit larger. Look at these legs!

And the wavy detail. It’s in a pretty good shape. The gorgeous legs need a touch up. And there are some paint drops on the side, visible only from a close distance. I am only worried about the veneer. It’s got a couple of scratches and some minor cracks in some spots. It’s not peeling, yet. I am only staining the legs and sanding the paint drops. I think i’ll leave the veneer as it is for now.  And we’ll see how this goes. What do you think?

A few cracks and scratches are a problem, a minor one at the moment

 Our home looks bigger and our old table top rests behind our bed. We have a pretty big headboard now! And i must find a centerpiece suitable for our dining table.

  1. What a beautiful table Zografia. You are very lucky to have inherited it from your grandmother and it looks fabulous paired with those chairs. I have one like it but I opted to paint mine because it was in awful shape and the top was laminate. yuk! I would recommend just a good cleaning, sanding and then varnish. You don’t need to take it to a specialist, I’m sure it’s an easy fix. And it will look even more gorgeous! I’m also very happy to hear that you are feeling better we have missed you. 😉

  2. Yes…I love the legs! Haha don’t worry about scratches etcthis just shows history. Many years of family meals,meetings,all sorts of family history. Who made this mark,who did this scratch…nice!

    1. Hi Niki! I just got and a few glasses that are roughly the same age as the table! I do not want to use them, a scratch or mark on them would not look nice!

  3. Μου αρέσει πάααααρα πολύ!!!! Και εγώ ονειρευόμουν πως κάποτε θα καταφέρω να πάρω το τραπέζι της γιαγιάς μου αλλά δεν μου έκατσε. Με τη πρώτη ευκαιρία πιστεύω πως θα πρέπει να τριφτεί όλο το τραπέζι και να περαστεί ξανά ένα βερνίκι γιατί είναι κρίμα να σου ξεφλουδίσει και να πάει και ο κόπος σου χαμένος. Πάντως εισαι πολύ τυχερή, είναι στολίδι απο μόνο του!! Καλό Σαββατοκύριακο!! 🙂

    1. Ναι, θα πρέπει να πάει σε μάστορα για να διορθωθεί, δεν θα το γλυτώσω! Όταν έρθεις προς τα μέρη μας, έλα να σου κάνουμε το τραπέζι! Καλά να περάσετε!
