Our Dining Room Table

I wanted to mention our dining room table and chairs. We had a hard time finding one to fit our space well. We wanted to get a higher table height since that would allow for a smaller footprint when four people are sitting at the table. We were able to find this 42″ high table at Crate and Barrel, but we didn’t want to spend too much on the chairs, so we set out to find some.

CSN Stores had these stools and they are the perfect height. We had great customer service with them. One of the stools came in with a broken piece. I called about it and they sent a whole new chair. Once Hubby assembled them, I decided I didn’t like the cushion fabric. I recovered the cushions with Hubby’s help and a staple gun.

We push the table and chairs up near the corner when it’s just the two of us, but then when we have people over for dinner, we pull it away from the wall so everyone has enough elbow room. The table has worked really well for us and also serves as an interim counter stop when loading things into and out of the fridge (it also serves as my portrait studio for my food photos).

Don’t forget – I’m offering a chance to win a cute tote if you donate $5 or more to my Avon Walk by the end of January. See details here.

    I’ve looked at those so many times at Home Depot. I’m so glad to see them put up in an actual kitchen.

    I dream of glass tile backsplashes too! Maybe someday… 😉
