Table woes...

Yesterday morning we discovered our dining room table has also been scratched. Well gouged is a better word. We've had this table over ten years and there was one tiny mark on it. Now the whole top is covered in scratches. I'm really not happy.

I know they are only things, but things are important to me and I was brought up to take care of things, so they'd last. I was also brought up to take care of other people's things too:

The decorators will be covering the cost of repairing this.  Again though, I'd rather it'd never happened...
