I have so much good stuff to share with you this week!! Today's story starts at Marshalls. It's a dangerous shopping vortex that can make hours pass in a blink. I went in hoping to find a cute pair of shoes. I left with shoes for me and Hubby, a sweater, and 2 chairs for the dining room. I wasn't really in the market for dining chairs... I have 4 currently in the dining room and 6 in the basement waiting to get refinished. Ooops. I blame Marshalls. and my sister.
I think I'm a big enough person to admit... I'm a dining chair hoarder. I'm in the beginning stages of refinishing the mis-matched chairs in my basement, but lately I've been picturing 4 of those chairs with an upholstered chair at each end.
I guess this can be the big chandelier reveal too. I still have to recenter the swag above the table and lower it a bit. I think the dining room's coming along, though. She's getting pretty! (Please accept my profuse apologies for the rushed, terribly lit photo. I owe you better, and trust me, it looks better in person).
There's one small problem with my 6 chair plan, though. The dining table. That's as big as it gets. 2 chairs don't so much fit on each side. Much to Hubby's chagrin, I'm now on the hunt for a dirt cheap rectangle dining table on craigslist. Something lighter? A bit less heavy, perhaps?
So, what do you think of my latest dining room changes?
