I have been meaning to post this forever.

This is the dining set Conrad had when I met him. I think his parents got it in the 90's - and it's perfectly fine, just wasn't the direction the decor seemed to be going in. We seemed to be getting darker and more contemporary and this wasn't cutting it. We told Conrad's sister when they were here in July and she said she'd love to have it. SCORE!

A lot of people have this set .... I just didn't love it anymore for us. Another shot?

SO - in October we went to Dallas for the JJ Pierce Holiday Bizzare and we brought our table with us. His sister had JUST refinished her floors, so it was perfect timing AND we didn't have to mess with Craigslist - and it stayed in the family.

My mom came from SC to visit a few days before the Dallas trip ..... and we went to Wal-Mart and saw a cute set. I wanted something inexpensive, but cute and modern - and I wanted it to be able to move into my craft room in the new house. So I didn't want it to be big or have a leaf. So we found just the perfect thing - at Wal-Mart and it was $200. SCORE AGAIN! .... Conrad went with me the next weekend with his Tahoe and we got it home and put together.

My mom loved it in the store- but of course, neither of us had seen it in the dining room. PERFECT for staging the housse for selling AND for crafting down the road ...

Another shot?

I LOVE IT! ... and I ran up to my friend Joanna's store- Refined Spaces in Tomball - and got that little table scarf. It's very cute and goes great. I do think I need to have a piece of glass cut for the top of the table so I won't be so paranoid about scratches, but it's 99% perfect!
