I have been honestly looking for years for a new dining set for our kitchen. The one we had was more that 20 years old and was purchased in the rush of one of our many moves and at the height of the “Country’ decorating style. I grew to hate it and covered it with a table cloth for many years trying to make due.
It’s a small space that calls for a small table. I wanted a glass table top to visually make the dining space even larger but could not find anything even close to what I wanted in looks and price. I finally found it. It ended up not having a glass top but that’s okay…I think I like this even better. We were very limited in that it had to be small….42 inches, it had to round, and I didn’t want it to be chunky looking.
I think the wrought iron base for the table and the chair backs helps make the set visually take up less space.
And then of course, I had to do some re-arranging and re-decorating with some of the things I already have. In this area I had a cream colored and very French looking chair. But now with the new set, that I think looks more Italian….I decided to move it and go vertical with some fruit prints that I had scattered throughout the kitchen. I kind of like them all hung back together vertically.
And don’t let all the wine fool you. While there are a few nice bottle in the mix, there are also bottles of Boones Farm Strawberry Hill, Old Fart, and Jim, Jim which were all gag gifts for my husband’s birthday a few years ago. (Undrinkable I think but they do make for good conversation.) :)
