{A New {To Us} Dining Table}

We've been making some changes in our home & one of those changes is our dining table.  We have an extremely small dining area.  It's really just a nook not an actual room.

We had a rectangular table there before but in order to get to one side of it you had to pull the table out. We always made our niece & nephew sit in certain spots because they are so little.  

I knew we needed a round table but convincing my husband was another thing.  Or so I thought.  
He went to our favorite used furniture store the other day to pick up a hutch & some chairs I bought & came home to tell me about this gorgeous table he saw that would be perfect for our space.  I knew I married him for a reason! 

I had actually looked at the table a few days before for my sister-in-law.  It wasn't the style she was looking for as it is hexagon versus round or oval.  I loved the base of the piece.

It's what stood out to me when I first saw it.  
I have plans on painting it but not sure what color yet.  I'm thinking ASCP Louis Blue.  

It came with two leafs & 4 chairs that need to be reupholstered.
It's perfect for our space. 

Right now I have our old chairs with it but we picked these up that I think I'm going to use for now after they get a fresh coat of paint & some new fabric.

We have a lot of projects going on right now that I'm trying to prioritize so we can actually get rooms done versus projects.  Hope that makes sense.

Anyway, I've been running a fever the last few days so I've been a little down in the dumps.  My energy level is extremely low which means I am able to get little done.

Hope I'm back to normal tomorrow because this mom doesn't have time to be sick. 

Happy Friday!


  1. Hope you feel better soon girl! Love the new table!

  2. I left a few comments, I am so amazed by your talent (a little jealous too, I have no idea where to start when it comes to painting). I'm adding you to my blog list.

    Keep up your amazing gift,

  3. Thanks, Tikaa! I am excited about transforming the table to suit our family's needs & style. I hope to start work on it this weekend!

  4. Emily, thanks so much! I'm still a little under the weather but painting makes it all better... LOL....
