My goodness, this is about to get awkward.
Remember our dining room?!
Well big woodie came to town and I am ready to rub my hands all over him.
That sounds like bedroom talk unless you know that MY DINING ROOM TABLE HAS ARRIVED! seriously…it’s like I’m four and this table is Santa. I’m that excited. And pretty much dying set a table for six….even though that would also be awkward seeing as how we have four in our family…and two of them eat with unbreakable dishware.
As you can see, I also switched things up in the dining room. The chairs were nixed and I brought in our spare seating (which is really modern and sleek and doesn’t go at all but it fits better than the oversized bentwood chairs)….and then I moved the misspelled artwork and the mirror and buffet. I think in general all of these pieces will go.
I’m thinking comfy upholstered chairs. Something like this. And then building a humongous buffet or getting big open shelves and stacking all my dishware out in the open. And the fancy mirror will probably get moved to someplace where it fits a bit better. It just doesn’t play nice with big woodie.
Personally I am so glad we decided to buy instead of build. There are a lot of instances where building is AMAZING. But I know how many hours it would have taken for us to get a table top to be THAT smooth and it is too many for me to put toward sanding. There are many things I am patient with….sanding is not one of them.
Just check out that smooth supple finish. And the perfect shade in my opinion….not too dark, not too light….just right.
Can you tell I am obsessed?!
Oh and I also finally updated the curtains….the last brown ones were WAY too short and I was missing one…so at my last Ikea run, I picked up two more packs of the RITVA dark brown linen curtains at 108″ and threw them up. Not vomit. Word problems. I still need to hem them. I want them to puddle…not create the Indian Ocean. Oh and my bar….it has to go. Here’s why. The table is too long and in order to get two end chairs (we want it to fit eight easily) then the bar is in the way. I never thought I would say this but the room is too small.
Shoot me now.
But hopefully we can move the barware stuff to another more useful space and then I can just hang a couple large matted frames there.
So that is what is up. In short.
Dining room switched.
More on the to-do list.
p.s. I have been gone….and now I am back with fury. I have tons of posts being drafted and getting ready…so no more slacking. Thanks for stickin’ by me 🙂
