Yesterday my new dining room table arrived. I managed to sell the old one and finally found exactly what I wanted for the dining room. This one came from Pottery Barn.....not a usual source for me as I much prefer vintage, however, I couldn't find one the right length and width and with an apron that would accommodate my mums wheelchair. Plus, I am fed up with place mats and tablecloths. I wanted good hearty wood so you can work at it and plonk a beer down if you want.
I also had to contend with the wood on my cabinet which is a little orange, so the table had to relate to it well. I think they are getting along fine. This table has 2 leaves which are not in the photo. I can easily seat 12 with the leaves in.
I mentioned before that I have made some furniture mistakes in my own house and these 2 upholstered dining chairs were one of them. Wonderfully comfortable to sit in, they seem to eat up the space when placed at the table ends. I have placed then rather unconventionally on the one side. They can be moved for larger parties.
So if any of my blogging friends are in the neighborhood, I can have you for dinner!
