I’ve been on a quest for a dining room table for more than fifteen years. Over the years my tastes and needs have evolved. It has to stand up to homework, craft projects, sewing and nightly games of Scrabble. I like this one, and the price, $340 is right. Needs a little TLC, but nothing major. I think it might be too dark though. My dining room will someday will someday be a luscious shade of apricot with wainscoting. If I get really ambitious, the ceiling will have stars like this to complement a nice crystal chandelier. I really like the dichotomy between the rustic table in the elegant room. What do y’all think?
Remember I told y’all I was getting my sofa redone? I’ve been putting it of forever, but finally I did it, and they did a TREMENDOUS job. I was very fortunate that one of Whit’s co-workers told us about this no name fabric store off I85. Can you believe this fabric was only $6.99 a yard!? The upholstery job was spendy, they had to make new cushions and repair a lot of springs, but as I reminded my husband the couch itself was free and very high end. It’s fifty years old and this type of craftsmanship would easily cost $5k today. We spent $130 on fabric and about $750 on the work. That included pick up, delivery, repairs and Scotchguarding. (Yeah I know a can of Scotchguard doesn’t cost much, but I didn’t want to spray it in my house.) if you need upholstery work I highly recommend New Century Upholstery in Chamblee.
