The reason this post has a question mark is because I'm not 100% in love with it... so I'm not 100% sure it's staying.
Don't get me wrong, our old table in the dining room is probably the saddest little table ever owned.
So when I was out garage saling last weekend, I found this awesome pub/bar height table marked for $150 and pictured it more as a Craigslist flip rather than a piece for our house.
I called Chris to celebrate... .... ... and to ask him if he would help break it down so we could get it home.
He and our buddy Blake took the legs off the table and took one of the chairs in my Subaru Tribeca SUV and I fit the rest of the chairs in Chris's Saab with me.
We were only a few side streets away from home so it wasn't nearly THAT bad.
What I DIDN'T expect is how much Chris would like the table. I knew it was in really good shape, but Chris LOVED it! I agreed to set it up in the dining room (if it didnt work out, I still would need pictures for Craigslist).
Don't get me wrong, I think its a MAJOR upgrade from what we had! I even agreed to post our old table on Craigslist and keep this one to see if I would grow on me. (Spoiler alert: We sold it for $100 in one day which makes this whole table upgrade 100% FREE!!!)
Here's a bit closer looks so you can really see the wood inlay.
- I think it would look a LOT better if our ceilings were just a foot higher, but I think the tall table just makes the room look a bit "shrunk".
2. It only has 4 chairs.
- If we have more than 2 people over, we don't have any other chairs the same height. I'm thinking this might be remedied by getting a set of leather accent chairs to go at either end, but so far I haven't found anything. (UPDATE: We actually did find some AWESOME accent chairs on craigslist for $25 a pop! Click HERE to check them out!)
What do you guys think? Do you like it? Don't like it? Think it's too big? Think it works? Chris's dad even said we could saw the part of the legs off to make it shorter... ... ... ... ... so there's that option.
Let me know what you think! Thanks!
