I moved the sideboard in the breakfast room
for it seemed a shame to cover up those lovely windows
And then I decided that I needed a different table
for the "smaller" space
So I brought in a wicker table from the front porch
Covered it with burlap and lace
And it was a nice table
But it seemed "short"
It was also a tad wobbly
But that may have been because of the brick floor
Plus you couldn't "wipe" it down
And Jim is a messy eater!
I've been looking for a table
And this week, I went shopping again
To the basement!
For my square table
A card table
Bought 20 years ago
from Bombay Company
On a deep sale
For like $100
Plus it was Valentine's Day and they were having give a gift
from Godiva Chocolates
For each $25 spent, you got a little box
I said, hey, I spent $100, do I get four?
And I did!
It's a little miracle table
Here it is in it's untablecloth form
(and looking at these pictures, I need to turn it around
so the legs don't look funny!)
You just pull out the back part and unfold the top
It folds up into a great little end table
(this is in the living room)
But it also has two leaves and will seat 8.
A very versatile table!
The breakfast room has changed more than any other room
in the house in it's seven short years
And I'm not usually that much of a changer
But it still remains one of my favorite rooms of the house
Even though it is one of the smallest!
The breakfast room with lace covered table,
A sideboard full of blue transfer ware
Two old chairs with needlepoint seats
And the best view of the garden!
Update: I noticed in the pictures that the legs of the table looked funny -- they weren't even -- they still aren't even but I DID turn the table around so they look normal!
