I’m getting close to showing the entire kitchen (tomorrow is the big day!) and today I wanted to share my current dining table.
I found this vintage mid-century dinette table around the holidays at a local thrift store. I was walking through the store to the back furniture section when it’s as if a choir of hallelujah singing Christmas angels parted the sea of shoppers and shone a light right onto this table. I practically ran over once I spotted the legs: brushed gold in near perfect condition. The gold design detail on the top sealed the deal. This baby was coming home with me. And for a mere $25. I gleefully skipped to the register, but not before warding off three other sharky shoppers eyeing the same table.
Jon went with me later that night to pick it up and was like “I hate the table. It looks like it came from my grandmother’s house.” It very well could have, but that’s awesome, imo. Home it came and straight into the garage it went. It took me selling our old table and chairs for Jon to finally agree to move the table indoors and now, folks, he actually likes it. Not love, but like. I, on the other hand, L.O.V.E. it.
I moved the painted vinyl chairs out of my room and set them up as captain’s chairs. They clean up so nicely with just a damp cloth or wet wipe. The other four chairs have their own post coming later this week. I’m not totally in love with the chair situation, but it’s getting the job done for now.
What do you think? Are you as obsessed with retro dinette tables as I am? Something about them feels nostalgic and current all at the same time.
Whole room reveal coming tomorrow!
