I’ve been wanting a new table for the kitchen for a while, but haven’t been able to find the one that is just right. Today Will and I ventured into P ier 1 to see what they had. One was so delightful, but wouldn’t work with my new place settings and colors. Then we saw it. THE table. Perfect size for our kitchen. Has a leaf for those times we have guests. Great color. Sales girl came over and we started talking about the set I had picked out. Tag on table was $299. Chairs separate. Okay. Then I noticed another tag on the table and gasped. The table TOP was $299. The LEGS were $99 each. No freaking way. So, I threw the question out there and asked what were the other leg options for said table. NONE. Those were the only legs for the table.
That was such a deal breaker for me. I told Will I thought our guests may be offended when asked to balance our new table top on their laps.
