A few days ago I showed you the dining chairs that I found at a consignment shop and the subsequent reupholstering in white. In that post I mentioned that my red ladder back chairs, who had been married to my farmhouse dining table for over ten years, had to go since the dining and living room is being designed using all neutrals.
Today, I am showing you where they ended up...in my breakfast nook. I don't know if I should call it a nook, because this area has very large, wonderful french windows which open up to the outdoor living space. So it is not really very 'nooky,' but you get the point. Perhaps, I need a new name for the area. If you got one, please share it!
I found this super gorgeous round glass top pedestal table at one of my favorite consignment stores. I loved it the moment I set my eyes on it, but felt like it had a lofty price attached to it. But after doing a little research, I learned that was made by the fine furniture company Henredon and had gone for well over 5 times what it was currently priced. I ask myself, "Who the heck spends all that money on such a table and then just decides to sell it for next to nothing?" Well, their stupidity is my gain! (wink)
This nook (I swear I need a new name) is adjacent to my family room, which I showed you a peek in my blog post. The slipcover fabrics and the rug have the same cranberry red color in them, so the chairs were perfect. We eat at this table frequently and I love the glass top because it is easy to wipe up with a little spritz of Windex and a paper towel.
I change out the top of the table every few days. My sister, Lisa, just found this totally cute little green owl at Salvation Army for me. As many of you know, I give my owls a white paint face lift. But, I think he will stay green for now. We have had a debate going on about that hole in his chest. Any guesses as to why that hole is there? Come on...give me a guess. Let's see if we can come up with it!
So I've have done a lot of things like this around my new house. I am hoping to get around and get images so you can see some of my progress. Hope it inspires you in some way. Hey! one more image of that awesome table base!
To die for! Hope you have a great weekend! I'm getting out and enjoying some of this sunshine. That Tropical Storm we had lingering over us last weekend was a bummer. Gonna go put my face in the sun.
