My parents just let me know they will be putting their home on the market soon. It is a home they moved into after I was gone, and I have never been attached to it. This article and these comments reminded me how important it will be for my sons to go back and say good-bye to this house. Thank you all for helping me to remember how important place is.
Saying Farewell to a Home

Oh - that is a beautiful table. I wouldn't do poly on that wood, wax would protect the top, but you would need to clean off water quickly as it will not protect against that. I just finished some reclaimed book shelves with briwax. I sanded them, then put a coat of wax, let it sit 10 minutes, used a shoe brush on it, then a clean lintfree cloth to polish. I know the shelves don't get as much wear as a table, but I'm not a fan of poly on wood. Your table will develop a beautiful patina as it is, or with wax.

I turned my all grass front yard in Northern New Jersey into a mixed perennial bed/vegetable garden, with a front patch of dutch clover. My neighbors all loved it, and there was no mowing, fertilizer or watering needed. I miss it.

I love the bookshelves in the living room. So clean! And so simple. What shelf brackets did you use?
