Between the new wood stove, dog beds and large dining room set, I'm constantly having to maneuver around everything. It's ridiculous.
Since my mom passed away, I no longer have big family holiday gatherings. I no longer need to feed a small army. It's basically my sweet hubs and I.
So I got to thinking...
As much as I love my "dining room" (American flag walls) we NEVER use it. The old ladder back dining room set I have in there was my mother's.
I love the set but quite frankly the chairs are not the most comfortable. Back in the old days folks were much skinnier and tinier than we are now. ((giggle))
Also, I am never giving up any of my old Windsor chairs. No way. No how.
So I dropped everything I was working on and started dragging tables and chairs around.
The table is only 36" x 42" compared to the 60" round I have in the kitchen.
Did you spot blurry, little "Twinkle Toes?"
I think it looks pretty darn good. So much more room, too! YaY!!! The table legs are bit on the chunky side, but they're turned and so are the Windsor legs. It'll do. Maybe I need to take a peek on Craigslist for old dining tables. Shhhh... No one (meaning my sweet hubs) needs to know that.
Hmmm... Not sure where the heck I'm going to put the round table though. I certainly can't take it apart myself. For now I'll cram it in the "dining room" and try not to notice it.
Lord only knows how my sweet hubs is going to react when he walks through the door later today and sees this one!
I'd better grab a defibrillator...
