Comments about Product: Table is attractive. Quality is medium given such a piece.
We use it in a guest house and when expanded as a buffet table for large parties. It is rather difficult to expand, however, especially for one person. Best to use furniture paste, (bee's) wax to make sliding the wood easier.
Extremely disappointed that the table looks as if there are 2 drawers at the front, but they are merely faux. That point should be DULY noted in the description! One of the reasons that we purchased this table was the potential drawers.
Too much trouble to send it back and start over!
Comments about Product: This table is perfect for a condo. Folded up it saves space, and expanded it seats 6 people. Well made, comfortable.[...]Fully assembled; just had to attach the legs. Would highly recommend it to others.
Comments about Product: This was one of the best furniture purchases I made. I live in a condo with limited space. I have guests come occasionally, but when I don't have guests I like having extra room.
This table serves as a side table for my entryway, but when I need to entertain guests, after about 15 minutes I have a full-size dining room table that seats six! The design is ingenious; the table is sturdy no matter whether it's set up as a side table, a 4-seat breakfast table, or a 6-seat dining room table. It's made of solid wood.
Want to step in for Santa? We happen to know this is high on _______'s Christmas list!
The Olla: A Brief History
Olla (Spanish, pronounced “oh-ya”) jars have been around since ancient times. Made of unglazed ceramic, ollas traditionally have short, narrow necks with wider bodies, and are made in a variety of shapes. They have been used for thousands of years for cooking, storage, and plant irrigation.
When used to irrigate plants, an olla is buried neck-deep in the ground near a plant’s roots, with the opening of the olla extended above the soil so that it can be filled with water periodically. The porous walls of the unglazed pottery allow the water to seep through gradually, constantly and consistently hydrating the plants without overwatering them – and without wasting precious water to evaporation or runoff.
The use of ollas for irrigation was introduced to the American Southwest by Spanish conquistadors during Colonial times, becoming very common among Native American tribes and Hispanic settlers. Though the technique gave way to more modern methods of irrigation some time ago, its superior efficiency, coupled with its simplicity, has caused it to make a comeback. Though the technique has changed little since its introduction, today’s ollas are usually capped off, making them even more water-efficient.
Perfect for home gardens, Ollas are a super-easy, eco-friendly, less time-consuming way to water annuals, perennials, herbs, vegetables and plants of all kinds in dry, sandy soil, very hot or drought-prone areas, raised beds, and even pots, planters and hanging baskets. Fill the olla before you leave on a short vacation to enjoy worry-free watering – and a smaller water bill!
