Soon to be: Dining in Style
I finally found a dining table I liked. Not brand new, but good enough for me. I found this for $80 on Craigslist and it’s only two years old from a nice family with kids. That means that the cloth seats are very well loved and stained. That’s okay because I know how to recover them. Better yet, it affords me a chance to dream more about fabric.
I love how the wood of the table top mimics the hardwood floor.
It’s also the center pedestal type that I was looking for.
Now I get to choose some really pretty fabric, durable, hopefully stain resistant, and mostly child proof to go on those seats. I’m thinking a damask design, something in chocolate brown and cream or black and cream. Maybe something like this?
I like the blue in it because I’m not sure if the table will stay here or move to my unfurnished front room. We’ll see. The sliding windows will have some lime green sheers, and the family area windows will have my favorite tropical print (cream background) fabric that I bought in Hawaii a couple years ago. I’m not sure a pattern like above will work with tropical print though.
I might also like something like this Freshcut by Heather Bailey fabric.
Or I’m thinking her Pineapple Brocade from her Pop Garden collection would work really well with what I have already (moss green couch, tropical themes, blue walls).
This is also very cheery:
Best thing about this? I now have somewhere to sit and eat, I can have small dinner parties, and I can sew up more stuff. Ya, like I needed more projects. LOL.
Ok, time to quit daydreaming and get to work!
