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 –>

Uploader is closed — thanks for playing!

    Hi Lila, you can post a link to the photo if it is hosted elsewhere… Note, we are not experts on all the designs so likely can’t tell you much about it…

    I am restoring a 1958 chrome dining set that was made in Memphis,Tn. I bought from an older gentleman for $25,it was his parents.It was in bad shape,2 of the chairs were sitting on the front porch and weather has cause rust.I have used quite a few products trying to remove as much as I can.The 4 chairs will be redone,I am hoping to purchase red cracked ice fabric as it originally was covered in. The table top is red and gray crackled ice laminate.Any suggestions from anyone, i would love Love all of these on this page.

    I do not sell anything. Refer to the companies profiled — the retailers are at the bottom of the story. Blue text = hotlinks.

    I love these great old tables. I am in search of anyone who has seen a vintage table with images visable in the seemingly
    random pattern. In 1978 or so we rented a furnished apartment with such a table.
    It had a splendid American Indian chief on horseback and a covered wagon……..people think I’m crazy … is similar to what is called “picture marble”.I’ve wished a thousand times I had that table! Anyone ever heard of this? randomm.

    Has any one seen a yellow table with abstract S’s in two opposite corners. Mom and Dad had one when I was growing up. I think the chairs were yellow with black piping.
