If you know me well, you know I just can’t leave my house alone.  l was needing a change and our table was wearing horribly – honest!!!  We’re pretty easy on our furniture, except tables and chairs.  Man, we’re just rough on them.  If you want to see the original table you can view it in Kitchen Remodel – Part 2.  You can also see how my photography has improved.

I had 3 reasons for wanting a new table and chairs.  One being that I needed something more rustic and distressed to hide our damage.  Two, I honestly just needed a style change.  And three, I thought the old table looked a little to matchy matchy with the island…the island I oh so love and will never change.  I love mixing furniture styles.

Ok, so let’s get to the good stuff, the new table and chairs!  Let me show you why I’m loving this table so much!  Let’s drool together…..

What do you think?  I’m just so in love!  I bought it from Pier One….I can’t stay out of that store!  Those who read the kitchen blog post or who are already familiar with my home may notice my chalkboard is missing.  Yeah…I’ve had it hanging in my kitchen area a solid 12 years!  I’d say it’s time for a change.  I can’t part with it though, it’s very sentimental, so it’s in the attic for now.  We didn’t use the chalkboard much anymore, it was mostly a scribbled mess.  So I’m on the hunt for new art work.  I have an idea of what I want – it’s just a matter of finding it.  I can’t be rushed, I want to love my choice.  Selecting art should be an enjoyable process, and you should end up with something you love.  Don’t be in a hurry to just fill wall space.  Make it right.  In fact….I’m feeling a future blog post on this topic so I’ll stop for now.  I’ll keep you updated on what I pick!

Now let’s get back to the table and chairs, the table top feels distressed yet still smooth.  Just looking at it I can tell it’s going to blend scratches, not highlight them like our last table!  I love the thick modern style of the table paired with these vintage inspired chairs.  The chairs are surprisingly comfortable with a cool farm house vibe, but when I look at them I think of a french bistro feel.  Hmm….that may need to influence my art selection!

I’m still in love with my Bellora Chandelier, it’s so versatile, it can go practically with any style.  Every time I see it I smile, that’s how you know you picked a good light fixture!  I love all the different tones of wood going on here!  Matching is boring. Oh….one more thing.  I killed my fig tree.  My mother will be disappointed.  What can I say?   have a special talent for killing indoor plants.  Right now I’m loving this faux fig tree…it’s low maintenance, unlike me.
