This post is not informative, inspirational, nor helpful in any way. It is simply to show off my beautiful, gorgeous new TABLE!!!!
This is something hubby and I have been wanting/needing to do for a long time. Our old table was seriously the size of a desk. I got it at IKEA before Jordan and I got married. The whole set of four chairs and a table was $120. It worked at the time; I lived alone in a small one bedroom apartment. Then after we got married and bought a house, it still worked since it was just the two of us and our dining area was still relatively small. Now that we are in a bigger home and have a child, we need something larger and more practical (especially since two of the chairs broke, leaving us with two working chairs). We also want to be able to host get togethers with our friends from church, and our previous eating situation was not very guest friendly.
As soon as I saw this farmhouse table from James + James, I knew it was the one. I love the classic look of the dark maple top and ivory base, and the farmhouse bench and x-back chairs compliment it perfectly!
When hubby gave the OK to get it, I could NOT contain my excitement.
I felt like this kid:
And this girl:
Then I found out it would be more than a month before I would receive this life-changing and spectacular table.
So we waited. And waited. And then... IT CAME!!!!
Here is our dining area before:
And here it is NOW:
I am SO happy with the wonderful young men who delivered and set up the table. They were so friendly, polite, and professional. They were also very considerate of the fact that my daughter was already in bed and tried to be as quiet as possible. James + James exceeded all of my expectations and made the furniture buying process as pleasant of an experience as it could possibly be. They even killed a few wasps for me that made their way in the house while they were moving the table.
This has been my favorite furniture purchase of all time. I am SO happy we decided to purchase from James + James instead of a chain store. Two thumbs up from me. 👍👍
I know it won't stay set so pretty all the time - with a baby, it's just not practical :(
BUT I will make more of an effort to do it every once in a while, just for feel-goods.
I have had this table for less than a day and I already can't imagine it being how it used to be anymore.
If you need me, I'll be running around the house like this:
