When I posted “a little tour” of my new home, I mentioned that I would share photos of my dining nook when I purchased a table and chairs. My daughter, her two youngest children and I ventured to the furniture store before Thanksgiving. Grandchildren are very helpful and actually wise beyond their years (especially my 8 year old granddaughter) when it comes to selecting furnishings. It “had to fit all of us for Sunday dinner” according to my sweet girl and she proceeded to explain how this would work. There are two extra chairs in my storage room on the lower level. The table has a hidden leaf which can be opened to an oval which seats six when needed. We actually scoot in the computer chair too and it seats seven! Otherwise, the table looks like this. Right now, there is a protective cover on the table and my sewing machine! It’s the perfect place to sew and watch old classic movies at the same time if I so choose.
In past years, I have used the shelves on the hutch for favorite dishes. This time, I’m enjoying using it for photos framed in black. I still have several more photos to frame for the buffet. The perfect place to enjoy my family on a daily basis.
I have so many books that I needed one more bookcase. Although I ordered the identical bookcase, the stain on the one on the far left was a little lighter. After putting it together all by myself, there was no way I was returning it! Come Spring, when I can open windows, I will try to darken the stain to match. In the meantime, I really don’t notice the difference and am living with it!
I love this little setting. The antique was a gift from my children’s dad on our twelfth anniversary…many years ago. The angel was a gift from my daughter and her family.
