When we moved from our home, I sold our dining room table….in a way, it was a bit sad for me.
That was the first new piece of furniture that we had bought as a young couple. My girlfriend and I had started a craft business and I had bought this table with the money I had earned. At the time, I never imagined that I would ever want anything different. And I didn’t for years. That table is where we gathered for many holidays….it is where we gathered to make science projects…and where I sewed many matching outfits for my girls…
But for everything there is a season…our new home will not have a breakfast nook and formal dining room as we had before, so the fancy table had to go. I am now on a mission to find a dining room set.
I want something that will hold my ever growing family…and yet feel cozy for Mr. Amazing and I when it is just the two of us. I would love a table that had built in leaves so I won’t have to lug ..or store large leaves.
I want a table that will look elegant when I want it to and yet my grandchildren can sit at it and color without me having to drag out table pads.
The chairs need to be comfy enough for hours of talking and game playing….yet light enough for the elderly to move them.
I saw this chair at Pottery Barn the other day and I keep wondering if it would work….
It is actually made out of an outdoor material….but it feels very much like real wicker…I thought that maybe the residue from sticky hands might be easy to clean off of it.
I didn’t see this chair in person, but I wonder how it would look to have one of these at each end of the table.
