Guess what! My new dining table and chairs were finally delivered to my house on Tuesday! I’m so excited to have my dining room a step closer to “finished”. I suppose you don’t want to wait for the picture as long as the eleven weeks I had to wait for the table. So, here it is.
I think the table fits the room well and is just the style I wanted. If you are really interested, the table was made by Legacy Classic and the style is Barrington. I purchased the set at a local furniture store in the Charleston area, Stuckey Brothers Furniture. I think it’s nice to support local businesses. The table came with a 20 inch leaf, but I’ll keep that in the closet until I need it. I only purchased four side chairs because I plan on getting two upholstered arm chairs for the ends of the table. I’ll get around to that some day, but I wanted to get the table in the space first to get a feel for it. I’m not particularly crazy about the seat upholstery. I may decide to redo it when I get braver. The only thing that gives me pause is the piping that surrounds the base of the seat. However, I do love having a cushioned seat. I use the space as my “office” and my big hiney previously had to sit on a hard chair, so my tush appreciates the new padding.
The space has come a long way since I last give you a reveal in September. Shortly after Christmas my husband, Jeromy, did this to the room.
Yup, there goes the popcorn. Ugh, what a mess. I don’t want to go into popcorn removal too much in this post. That is another can of really dirty worms. After several steps of patching and sanding, here I am painting the ceiling with Moderne White by Sherwin Williams.
In the picture below you can see the transition where we stopped working on the ceiling. The space is open to the rest of the house and this was a logical stopping point until we’re ready to get dirty again. I still have to paint the creamy yellow walls to the left and right. Full disclosure: I’ll have to give the dining room ceiling another pass with sand paper and paint roller. We’re not totally happy with how it turned out. More on that in another post.
So, now that I finally have the new table I’m obsessed with centerpieces and table linens. I have this as a place holder right now.
It’s basically potpourri and pine cones on a platter. I’m on the hunt for something different. I don’t care for really smelly things on the dining table. I also tried my placemats on the table and was too embarrassed to keep them there. Mama needs some new linens! It has been years since I’ve had anything new. I’m thinking of using my old aqua colored curtain panels to make a table runner.
You probably don’t remember, but this is what my dining room looked like in November.
And here is what it looked like yesterday.
Hooray! I wish y’all could come over for dinner now that I have a proper table. While dinner is cooking, I’ll be playing with table arrangements!
