A place to dine

Last night I scored a dining table & chairs. Oh how I love Craigslist! I bet you're thinking "I thought she got a table and chairs a few weeks ago (circa this post) however, I decided I just didn't LOVE the legs on the table, and I bailed.

Then I found another set that was even cheaper, however the guy was a J-E-R-K and sold them out from under us without even telling us (literally we had borrowed mom's suv and hooked up the trailer and were on our way to pick them up, and Chris called just to clarify on the address and the guy was like "oh sorry, I know I told you I'd save them but I just sold them" - grrr)

Regardless, last night this set came home to live in my house! I plan on giving her a fresh coat of white paint once it warms up outside (spray painting large pieces of furniture in the house just doesn't sound like the best of ideas). I love the detailing in the back of the chairs and can already picture some super cute fabric options to replace the kelly green that graces it's presence now.

She'll be going in here once the chair rail gets put up, and the mini fridge and camping chairs get removed!

Very nice! :) And what a jerk for selling the table without telling you first...some people!

Great table set! Craigslist can be the best, can't wait to see the finished product.

white paint always spruces everything up. it's going to look great when it's all done!
