Here is my new set being assembled. I'm actually surprised it turned out so well considering I had had a few glasses of wine that night lol. I should also preface this to say my old dining table was the pub hight, square black with 6 chairs style.
|Sassy legs huh? LOL|
|This will become a chair|
|I recommend always using non slip feet and soft pad feet for hardwood floors.|
|My bamboo rug. Miss Fancy Pants couldn't resist checking it out.|
|Table and chairs finished. Oh did I mention it has a gorgeous bench?|
|Leather seats. Yum. After sitting at a pub high table for the past 5 yrs I felt like I was going to fall on the floor when I first sat down here lol.|
|Tufted leather bench.|
|It's 76 inches long!|
|The table cloth will be a must and I also have one on the bench seat. I'm thinking about having a piece of glass cut for it so I can show it off and not keep it covered up. Thoughts?|
I also got this table top Mora style clock from Pier 1 Imports last weekend. Mr Garden spoils me. There were actually other ones I liked better because they were painted in color and had been papered with different prints. But they didn't match my colors so I bought the brown one.
Lastly I was desperate to find something to go next to the clock. I was thinking a metal bowl with those jute covered balls and some made of vines etc... but man those balls are expensive! And I really wasn't in the mood to make my own. So I searched and changed my mind a million times until I decided to give up because nothing felt perfect. And when you buy something that doesn't feel perfect it's impulse and typically ends up getting returned anyhow.
But on my way out of the store... These two were staring at me and it was that moment when the heavens opened up and the angels sang. That was the moment I was waiting for and so I knew it was right!
Aren't they the cutest?!! I didn't like how everything was getting a little too "dark" on the mantel and the shelves so with the transformation of the clock I decided these would be painted ... but you'll just have to wait and see!! But you won't want to miss it because I have a feeling you're going to LOVE it!
