Caring for a Reclaimed Wood Table?

Good Questions

Q: I picked up a copy of the January issue of Town & Country, and fell in love with Ina Garten's rustic wood (reclaimed salvaged) table. She purchased it from a high-end store in Sag Harbor....not so close to me in Scottsdale, AZ and definitely not in my price range! Aside from Restoration Hardware, where can I find a gorgeous reclaimed wood table like this that is full of character and not ridiculously expensive? Also, my husband seems to think a table like this might be a nightmare and show ever single spill or ring from an iced drink etc. Does anyone have any experience with a similar type table? To me it would seem low maintenance in that you would never worry about scuffing or scratching the surface because it adds to the charm.

Editor - Love the table too, Jenn, and we're all for reusing reclaimed wood with its inherent natural beauty. But we admit we haven't had any experience ourselves with a table like this. Perhaps some of our readers can chime in with advice and opinions.
