Not to overwhelm you with posts on a Friday afternoon, but I couldn't resist sneaking this one in.
My new (to me) dining set was waiting for me when I got home from work yesterday and I'm in love. I had to dress him immediately. And it turns out that the Ikea fabric I bought a couple weeks ago is exactly the perfect size (even has selvage down the long ends on both sides, so all I have to do is a quick hem on the short ends) and the table is the perfect show case for the fabric's large print. Score.
Sorry for the wrinkles - I was too busy loving the table to bust out the iron
I never realized how uncomfortable my old dining room set was until this guy arrived. Our dining room was basically a dead space, because we never sat there. But now... I'm not going to eat dinner at the coffee table anymore! I didn't even want to go to work because I was so comfortable sipping my tea here this morning.
Also works well with some placemats I dug out of the drawer and my Ikea vases
If I had known I would love a table so much, I would have sucked up the cost much sooner and gotten one.
