    vintage dinettesWhen I wrote an ode to kitchen tables a while back, we had a dinette uploader — but that was three+ years ago — and the blog has a gazillion more readers now. So let’s see what ya got, folks! The first uploader of the year is ON — take some photos and upload them this weekend. We’ll follow up by spotlighting 10-12 of your dinette sets next week. It’s super easy to contribute a photo — read on –>

      Hello.I am looking to purchase some crome metal handles that attach to the top of the backrest of a early 50″s dinette chair. I saw what I”m looking for in your pictures of vintage dinette sets. That style of handle is pictured in your website photo gallery. Image 41 and 43 show a red dinette set with the closest two chairs having crome handles on the backrest.The title of the picture says red diner and the table is red with grey pattern in the center, and the chairs are red. Please let me know if I can purchase a part like them from you, or direct me to someplace where I could buy them. I am restoring my parents 50″s dinette and chairs and they got rid of the crome pieces long ago. Any help is appreciated. Thanks, Phil
