We bought a dining table

I'm not sure if I should be embarrassed or proud that this is the most exciting thing to happen to us in weeks. Truth be told, it's been a brilliantly relaxing summer, with a few more fun weekends on the horizon. But none have really been blog worthy unless you want to hear about us sitting by the pool all weekend long.

When we're not sitting by the pool, we're dreaming up how in the world we're going to renovate our kitchen to make a big impact, without spending big dollars. And buying a dining table really has nothing to do with that, but I just thought I'd tell you what else we've doing lately.

So on to the new dining table. It's really, really pretty! I thought about holding off on a picture because we don't have chairs for it yet. But what's a blog post without a picture, right?

The Holland House: Scalloped Dining Table
Our table, but not our house.

It has a beautiful scalloped edge, and a grayish finish. It's also a drop leaf table, which makes it pretty practical long term. Hank has found comparable tables on eBay for anywhere from $700-$1200. We paid $250 for this!!! Have I told you how much I love my resourceful husband? He's the one who found it on craigslist and insisted we look at it.

Originally we were thinking we wanted a farmhouse table, but just weren't thrilled with anything we found in our budget. We weren't even sure about this one until we saw it in person. It truly is a special piece of furniture, and I'm so glad we lucked out with such an amazing deal. I'm sure we'll end up paying for it in the long run as we begin our hunt for the perfect chairs. But I think it will really change our dining/living area once it's all complete.
