I really do like some modern ones - but I am trying very hard to buy as little "new" as I possibly can. Just seems nicer to the environment - not to mention my pocket book.
All week - a voice in my head kept saying "you need to go check out the shop on N. Wadsworth, like, RIGHT NOW!!!!!!!! Finally - I had a day where I could get out @ lunch and I headed up there. I barely turned the car off when I spotted the lil' table & sweet chair! YIPPEE!!!!!!!
Of course - the negotiations needed to happen. I had a price in mind - but when the owner offered me $10 less that what I was hoping for it was ALL I could do to keep my big mouth SHUT. (I don't have much of a poker face) I took it. And it's already been well received at home.
What I didn't anticipate at home is how much it's disrupted our "dinners" (not that the monsters ever sit at the table like perfect angels). They usually start @ the little table - and then see us @ the big table and we have to move them both over. Whatever works so that they eat, right?!? Uhg.
I'm still looking for 2 more chairs - the less they match the better. And I'm also on the hunt for a great mirror for above the fireplace. I always have to have something to hunt for. You need me to look for anything??? ;)
As you can tell - the table is a BIG HIT! It got a thumbs up. That's big time, folks.
