My husband Steve and I have been decorating or rather redecorating our kitchen this year. So far we have purchase Stainless Steel Appliances, only because our oven broke and then that started us into a decorating mode and to make the dining area more functional for family get togethers.
So this week we purchased a really nice table and chairs, we had four chairs already and a black distressed hutch. Our old chairs have black and walnut wood color, the new chairs are all black with a nice solid wood table we got from from RC Willey. It was the very last one, the actual floor model. The table will open up to 102 inches and can seat about 10 to 12 because at the ends of the tables we can fit two chairs there for the holidays. We will need this since Kirsten my daughter is looking like she is going to marry her boyfriend next year and he has two kids that he has custody of. So instead of putting the fold out tables in the great room as we have been doing in the past, we can all fit in the kitchen dining area and I have one extra rattan glass top table in the great room for overflow that will seat four more people if I have extra guest.
So this will work out great for us giving us lots of room in the great room to move around with the extra kids we will need that room.
We got the table and chairs for a great price and I mean great price. I do not have the leaves in the table but they slide in at the ends, that is really a great feature.
Well looks like I might be a step grammy next spring to Kayla 9 and Brandon 5 and I am sure after that from what Kirsten says our family will be growing again.
I got to spend the afternoon with my granddaughter Morgan, I picked her up after school and we hung out for awhile. It was a great day. Morgan is my sons daughter.
The day before that I had lunch with my friend Terry and her 6 month old grandson, he is so cute and big.
Here is a few photos of our kitchen table set. We need to hang a new chandelier which we purchased and remove the busy Warren Kimble border and then we are happy with the make over of the kitchen this year.
The Warren Kimble border at the top there and Chandelier must go. Steve and I bought a new Chandelier it's very homey.
I like the table with the Lantern in the center I was playing with the decorations and finally decided to go with this look.
everyone thinks my kitchen looks country but soon I will be going to a Italian look, once that border comes down and I get the Italian art up it will look the way I want.
So we have quite a job ahead of us this weekend. But first Steve needs to finish painting the back of the house and he is also working on a car to sell, so he is a busy guy right now. So probably will only get the Chandelier hung.
Here is my Flower Cloche it turned out pretty. I am now making purses! yes I am always crafting. My husband thought I looked good in the cloche but I don't think so at all. My hair is getting long. Yay!
Yuck! but I love the Cloche with flower so cute!
Side few is better.
Edee thought I was making her a blanket. LOL!
Okay back to working on the purse I am making my daughter for a Christmas gift, it's cute so far. Much different style from my last purses. I decided to use a pattern from Lazy Girl Patterns, in the past I didn't use a pattern.
I will take a break from that to make pumpkin walnut bread today. Yummy!
