Across from this chair is a couch that divides the room from the dining room….and an ottoman in front of the couch…..BUT….every time I had a large family meal I would have to move all the furniture and bring in two tables for the day….
So over the holidays I started shopping for a dining room table…at first I wanted to have my husband make me one…..but I KNEW it would be a L O N G time before he had the right amount of time to devote to such a special project……..so I started searching and found a couple from Restoration Hardware and Pottery Barn……but I needed to see them all in person…
So I called the Chicago Restoration Hardware’s to see if any of them had the ones I liked on display and the same call went out to Pottery Barn…Each store was very accommodating..so off we went…..While the Pottery Barn rustic tables were BEAUTIFUL — they were just a bit large for my new dining room….So I went with the Restoration Hardware Boulangerie Table….this was an all day process…Trying all the different chairs with the table…back and forth and back and forth….and our sales person was AWESOME!!
The new shelves are reclaimed wood pieces from our property….. I love the uneven wood stains on them….more on them later….and the table….it is one of the unfinished reclaimed wood tables from Restoration Hardware …..being unfinished I was worried about spills and stains..so…..I researched and found a product to seal the wood and protect it from stains and spills…sort of important for a dining table –right? So now I am busy trying to find the right table center pieces….table runners…all of the fun stuff..and loving the new table, chairs, shelves, little dry sink…..I still walk past the room and smile…and can’t believe it is in my house..oh and up next? hardwood floors for that room!!
