Dining Table = Ordered.

Although not my absolute favorite, this table is on it's way to our house.

I've been on the hunt for a pedestal table for some time now, and have some tight parameters:
1) had to be shipped to us, since we don't have a big enough car yet.
2) had to be the right size (small) for our dining area.
3) had to be under $300, unless we were going to wait another year.
4) had to be a round table, pedestal preferred, because of the tight space. that was the toughest requirement of the 4 to comply with, since i've always lusted after farmhouse tables.

I thought it would be a piece of cake to snatch one off of craigslist, but since we couldn't find one and we are desperate to finish the kitchen (it's the first room we started on when we moved in), we went with this one. Originally $400 but on sale for $200. Don't ask what shipping was...We almost didn't buy it because of shipping, but what are you going to do when nothing else has worked in your favor?

We may or may not paint it white, we'll have to see how it looks first.
We didn't end up finishing the project I told you about. Drag. We couldn't find the right part for it, so now we're waiting till an IKEA trip because I know IKEA has just what we need.

Hope your weekend was good! I worked yesterday but have today off. What to do, what to do...
