This one was a case of the plumber with the leaky pipes. I bought this gorgeous set at the beginning of the summer because I was bored with my old, World Market set. I had kind of outgrown the style and it was time for it to go. I found this new Haverty’s set on Craigslist (of course!). I loved the style, the size and the look, but I just couldn’t get past the color. Or, I should say, the colors. The orangey brown stain was exactly like what I had just gotten rid of, and the cream colored based matched absolutely nothing in my house. I have white bead board, a white corner cabinet, well, you get the idea. Their were also a few large scratches, and a couple of water marks too, which is why I got such a great deal. But all in all, it was easily fixable stuff. So one day when I had a little break in some customer orders I decided that it was time to bite the bullet. So glad that I finally finished it because now it’s PERFECT!
