So you remember how I was saying how much I wanted a breakfast nook? Only this would be the dining nook- because my house is tiny :) Well... I told my husband and he said he would help me!
...So a couple weeks ago I sold my kitchen table... and chairs.
They were fine but I needed a square table to do what I have envisioned so the pretty thing had to go.
I put them on the KSL classifieds and they sold for $200. They sold a little sooner than I had expected so we have been living without a table and chairs which is no big deal since we usually sit at the kitchen counter anyway. But I would like to throw an after Christmas dinner party and a table is kind of needed for that.
So I searched for a couple of days and found the PERFECT table. I know I use caps a lot when I am excited but honestly- I'm not using my caps loosely here! It's PERFECT!
I picked it up for $100 (well actually my sweet, sweet hubby did)
So here's the beaut (Don't mind my disastrous garage!)
This is what I have planned for her:
This is a table from Ballard
This one is from Sears
Both of these tables retailed for around $1,000-1,200.
No thank you! Once I'm finished with this project I'm thinking I will be in it around $350 and the money from my table and chairs that I already sold will offset that cost.
I also snagged some vintage chairs that are going to need a LOT of work but they will be perfect for the table when I finally finish them. Pictures will come in a later post of those so check back soon! This project is going to be done within the next couple of weeks.
