A Dining Room Update

Well, the moment of truth has finally come. Back in 2017, I posted a blog entry about dining room inspiration. Last week we finally purchased a dining room table and chairs and I am so excited! 

This was our dining room table and chairs. It has served its purpose. I only purchased this back in 2008 because it was within our budget and it was the only table (at the time) that had 6 chairs. 

I will NOT miss this table. I hate the bar room style dining room table. The chairs are not comfy and I hate that I had to buy chair cushions every year because the chairs are too hard. Not to mention, this past Christmas when I hosted, my husband's 88-year-old grandmother tried to sit in one and it was too high for her and she slid right out of it!


This is going to my step son's house. He will enjoy it more. I believe it fits more of the bachelor lifestyle.

This is our new table minus the chairs. Our table arrived on Thursday (see below) and I could not love it more. My other four chairs will not be available for delivery until June 11th and they are Queen Anne style chairs.

I can't wait until my dining room is complete. I will post more photos once my set has been delivered. It's been a long journey waiting for this and I hope that everything comes together as it should. 

Enjoy your weekend!
