Our "New" Kitchen Table


Before I post my craft room redo I wanted to show you what we did with my former work table...

We were moving it through our kitchen into the family room while emptying my craft room to paint, and on a whim tried putting it under this window and it filled the space perfectly!

I am absolutely in love with eating in our kitchen!
(Before we would eat all our meals in our dining room, which was great, but sometimes felt a little funny since there are only two of us!!)
This space before just felt odd and empty, and now it fills our kitchen up making it feel warm and inviting to me! Right now we just have two extra dining room chairs with it, but not for long! I have several ideas... possibly some chrome Bertoia chairs, anyone?

And this table is extra special to us because it belonged to John's Great Aunt Mary, one of the coolest people I have ever known! Mary spent every day in nylon knee highs and flip flops, was never without her travel cup of coffee, put over 200k miles on her '74 orange VW Beetle, and was a published author and teacher... like I said, one of the best.
We miss you Mary.


Thanks for taking a look, and I promise, craft room pics coming soon!
