New Dining Table

new dining table

Well, new to us anyway. I love our huge, old dining table, but sadly it is too big for the space in our new house, so we had to find another one. I searched Craigslist and found this beauty.

I love Craigslist — even though we had a very tight budget I was still able to track down something I liked. I searched for “round table” but in conjunction with terms like “retro,” “modern,” and “vintage” I was able to narrow the results to find just what I was looking for.

I wasn’t sure what to do for chairs, it originally had these big orange chairs that were super cool, but only fit four around the table and we really need to have six. I finally decided to pair it with six white Gilbert Chairs from Ikea. They are slim and the white brightens up the dark table.
