joys adventures in home decorating.
The new dining table arrived earlier this week –
It’s incredibly heavy, like pulled my lower back moving it this way and that way, taking out the leaf, putting the leaf back in. So that’s good, I paid for that weight.
We ordered new chairs, that’s good news. But there’s bad news. They cost more than I thought with an accidental purchase of just slipcovers (what? at that price it doesn’t come with the chair?) that meant I had to buy missing order of chairs to actually put the slipcovers on, which then resulted in a forehead self-slap and, sorry to delivery bad news honey conversation.
Here they are –
Now comes a new light fixture.
Mr. Wonderful is never going to let me remake a new room again. I’m surprised he trusts me after the oil painting on canvas fiasco.
Here’s what I’m eyeing –
I read you should get a chandelier 12 inches smaller than the shortest width of your table so no one bumps their head getting up from their seat. This means I’m looking around 26″.
Since we moved from round table to a long rectangle, I’m looking at a sideboard/credenza (do they use that word anymore?) to take up space by a wall.
Cheers to room makeovers – haha – OK, I’m not laughing, I’m crying.
