Check Out The Rest Of Sunday's Broyhill Emphasis Spoils. Note The Bright Sunny Pics. It Was Hot. Status: Worth The Effort!
This is the other "half" of the big Emphasis dining set that Nick of Mid Century Mid West and I picked up Sunday afternoon. Luckily Nick has a nice size van and was able to haul the lion's share of the pickings back to his joint. We're both kinda over loaded at the moment! Soooooo...anybody looking for a nice Broyhill dining set?
I'll be heading out of town on our big summer time roadtrip soon (don't worry, I'll be taking
you along this time!), so Nick and I will probably be sitting on this setup until I get back...unless
we piece it out. We haven't really ironed out the details just yet. This was one of those can't pass
up deals that we just jumped on and figured we'd work it all out later. In any case, this beautiful
large Buffet is basically a larger version of the base of the china cabinet! Plenty of space to store
all your fine serving pieces in style. Or if you're into re-purposing...it'd be great to set your big ol'
flat panel TV on top of and store all your Blue Rays, DVDs and VHS tapes (you know you still
It only occurs to me now that there wasn't a set of leaves with this dining table. I can't remember
that last time I bought a Broyhill dining table with out at least ONE leaf! No biggie. If you're
thinking about picking this set up from us and need a leaf I'm sure one of my many Brasilia leaves
will fit. You're covered. There are some minor finish issues that we'll probably work on before we
let the set go. They aren't as noticeable as I've made them out to be in the pics above. I worked
the angles to get a good view of them to make them stand out. I think a little Restore-A-Finish
will take care of most of the tables issues.
The chairs are in especially good condition...except for one big ol' scratch on one of them.
Otherwise, they are utterly wobble free! And while the upholstery isn't exactly exciting...it is in
excellent condition...and easily replaceable. It took me about two hours to recover each of my
Brasilia chairs but I REALLY took my time and tried to make them look as good as I could. I'm
pretty picky about my upholstery. I'm kinda wondering what lurks under the upholstery that's on
these! I'll have Nick take a look. Maybe there is original upholstery in good shape under there!
