Dinette - new table

The new table is a little bigger so that it can support the foam cushions when set as a bed, but it's the same shape as the original. Seating works well without feeling too cramped because the foam cushions are a little bit shorter and softer than the original box-spring seats. No more dragging an extra piece of plywood around to set-up the front bed! After much looking decided to go with the VirrVarr formica pattern, I have enough to do the countertop and upper storage doors to match if we decide that it's right. VirrVarr was a best seller in the early 60's so while it doesn't have gold flecks like the original table it's from the right time period and looks like it belongs.
