I know, I know. . . two posts in one day and I haven’t blogged in two weeks. But this morning the delivery men brought my new dining room furniture that I have been waiting for! Oh and I just love it. Especially with the green walls. The room will be gorgeous with some window treatments and a few things on the wall. Here are a couple of pictures. . .
Can’t you just picture my china in the cabinet? Well, maybe not. . . but I sure can. It is in pristine condition since IT HAS NEVER BEEN USED and we have been married for ten years. It still has the price stickers on the bottom of each piece. And some of my crystal is still in the Castner Knott boxes (for those of you who remember that wonderful department store). And I know what you are thinking. . . she has two little kids and white upholstered seats – she must be crazy! Well, not so much. I didn’t have a choice in the fabric (which is actually cream) but loved the furniture. And I my expectations are that the seats will be stained – probably by me first. 🙂 And one day we can recover them. But it is just furniture and this is real life. . . I want to use it and enjoy it and not worry and obsess about it looking perfect. I like my house to feel warm and comfy and most of all “lived in.”
Thanks to my wonderful husband for buying this for me! I know how much he really wants a big flat tv thingy, but he put my desires first. What a man!! I love you, babe!
Now, I have a couple of questions. . .
1) Do you use one of those big pad things, that covers your table, when you eat on it? Or do you use a table cloth? Both?
2) Or do you use place-mats? Or just chargers?
I have never had a dining room, so I need some help here!! I am giddy with excitement. Can you tell? Two exciting things in one day. . . my new furniture and talking about Disney (see previous post). So, leave me some comments and help me know how to eat on this table! Ciao!
