Mid Century Patio Tables. To Sell or Not to Sell?

That is the question.  Do I want to let this cute pair go?  I purchased them around 6 months ago-ish, and planned to restore them to use in my backyard for the summer.  (HaHa! Funny).  

HaHa, still laughing.... I'm finally accepting that with a baby, two jobs, and a home to run, restoring things gets put to the very bottom of my list. Let's be honest, it doesn't even make The List. It's like a someday list.

So, I posted them on Craigslist with a "make me an offer" price and some good ones have come in.   However, what happens when the thought of them disappearing from your someday list becomes real? You have second thoughts. It's ridiculous, yes. Let them go right? Right?

My second question is, does anyone know the maker? I've done some research, as I love to know the who-what-where of all my goods when possible, but I haven't found anything close to this design thus far.

They look very much like the table to my Russell Woodard set (which desperately needs to be refinished). I say keep them! Drop them off to be sandblasted and powdercoated. It's not expensive and lasts so much longer than DIY spray painting. That's where mine are headed.

I'm with Dana on this one. Those are really cute. I would just take them to a powdercoater and have them blast and coat them. That makes it super easy and when you get them back they will be so beautiful and glossy.

Thanks Ladies! I've looked into a couple places and will get some quotes next week. I'm excited!

Those are beautiful. I know the feeling. I have so many things sitting in storage for "someday." I just keep thinking that this whole mid mod trend is growing in popularity and I won't get great deals on them again...so I play the waiting (procrastinating) game.

I think Dana's got it with RW (or a very close knock off) I know that dread feeling of letting go of something thats beenon the list forever, but you just cant deal with it. Chin up! There will be other lawn tables!

Hey guys, thought I would update you - I got the tables appraised and it came back that they are most likely Russell Woodard, though we cannot be 100% because there is no documentation.

Value of the larger table refinished - $500-$800. I think that is on the high side personally, but it tells me to hang on to these babies! I'm getting quotes this week to have them blasted and powder coated. I will post when they're refinished.
