New Table!

I am so excited to introduce you to my new kitchen table!
We had our old table and chairs for approximately 27 years! 
 (This Cinco de Mayo table from last year shows my old table)

There were a lot of meals eaten and home work done at that old table.   Considering all it had been through it was still in pretty good shape, frankly, I was just growing tired of it.  I was ready to move on, since everyone is all grown up I felt we could up grade to something other than a laminate top!

This table has a planked planed wood top and just a bit of distressing on the off white finish.  I decided to get two all white chairs and four chairs with the wood stained seats, just to mix it up a bit.
I love the double pedestal base!
 I justified my purchase by creating this table to match the hutch I bought last year that is in the dining room.  That way when the time comes to down size - we can use the two pieces together!  Yep - my husband bought into that thinking!

Both pieces were custom made at Swiss Valley Furniture in Sugarcreek, Ohio.
I highly recommend this place!  The guys are great to work with and the quality of their work is  
I am looking forward to setting some great tables on this beautiful wood top!

Now don't feel bad about my old table- it is staying in the family-just getting passed down to one of the boys, where I think that laminate top will be perfect!

In the past few years my interests have grown from fabric to paper and now to dishes too! I just love prints, polkadots, plaids and paisleys- hence the blog name.

  5. Your table is wonderful and I love that you had it made by someone locally. Our kitchen table is pine and I can see dented in the wood where our boys did their homework.
