Kitchen Tables FAQ:
Question: I have a circle kitchen table and 5 chair set in great condition. How do I know if its an antique?
I found one similar to it on the internet. It said it was purchased from Good’s in the 1970’s. It is a really heavy and solid wood as are the chairs. They have held their construction all these years.
Answer: There is no clear definition of what an antique is. Generally speaking antique furniture is at least 50 years old and has some added value due to it’s rarity. I doubt most people would consider a table from the 70’s as antique, but if you want to call it antique you can.
Question: How to build a kitchen table?
Answer: The 1st step is to define what kind of table you want to build.
Standard 4 post legs or is it a single pillar? Wood, metal, or composite? Size? Number and types of chairs?
You might find something close in a 2nd hand store. Even if you tear it apart for the materials, it may be more cost and time effective than starting from scratch. In the end you still get what you want and you have built it yourself.
There are some free or low cost plans available through the net. You may want to set your search engine to images and scan until you see something you like.
Question: How can I get a light scratch out of my formica kitchen table?
Answer: Try rubbing compound. You will find it where car wax is sold. There are different grades of abrasiveness but it is easy to use and wont cause further damage.
Question: Does anyone know where I could find a nice, inexpensive kitchen table with matching chairs?
I would like a wooden table and chairs (either 4 or 6 chairs), and I don’t mind second hand just as long as it looks nice. Any ideas? The cheapest for the best is what I’m trying to accomplish.
Answer: Depending on what area you are in there is a website called freecycle that people post what they have to offer. I have used it lots of times and besides you can’t beat the price FREE.
Question: What is the point of a pub style kitchen table?
I just received a small table from the brick…I ordered it on-line. It’s so tall, my feet don’t even touch the ground when I’m sitting on the chair. It says pub set…what is this? Why are they so tall…is that the new style or made for giants? I never noticed on the picture it was like this.
Answer: Pub style meaning pub like in a bar. They come from the coffee houses, bars and restaurants that have them, then started popping up in the late nineties for the home. We have one that is an outdoor set that I love. You just have to have in mind bar stool size chairs before ordering.
Question: I’ve spray painted my fiberglass kitchen table. Its now dry, but with a powdery finish. How can I fix it?
Its a multi purpose enamel which is apparently supposed to be “tough, durable and long lasting” Do I need a specific type of spray paint for fiberglass?
Answer: Sounds like you’ve sprayed from too great a distance. Basically you’ve covered it with what I’d class as overspray. Flatten it back with #800 or #1000 grade wet and dry paper and lots of water and respray from a closer distance ie 6-8″.
Question: Where can I find a rustic kitchen table to seat 10?
I am after a table that would seat 10 people comfortably with chairs to match. I live in the country with little kids so it can’t be too precious.
Answer: Sounds like a custom job. Building a table yourself isn’t all that difficult, but the chairs would be a challenge. You could go to a home center or discount furniture store and get matching chairs. Or, for an eclectic look, go to yard or estate sales and pick one or two up till you get to ten. They’ll all be different and no fussing over who’s chair belongs to whom.
Question: Does anyone know of a good cherry wood cleaner for a kitchen table that gets a lot of day to day use?
