I got a new dining room table last week! This is 10 years in the making people. Kinda still in shock.
But before you look at the photo, I feel the need to explain it first. This was a phone pic I randomly took to send to my husband so he could see it. I didn't get around to taking photos of it yesterday for the blog, but wanted to show you anyways. I have a white pillow sham pinned to the seat of the cream slipcovered chair so I could see what new floor length slips might look like (that's how my brain works).
Here's the full table.

I love her. She's so pretty. But as most things do - one thing leads to another.
Instead of just popping it into the dining room and calling it good, an avalanche started. I knew I was going to need to make new slipcovers for the chairs, but I wasn't expecting it to look so crowded in there! So, I decided to move the buffet out and place it in front of the stairway just to see how it would look. I likey. And pay no attention to the bench area by the door, that mirror was a place holder, and it's entirely different now. It too fell victim to the dining room avalanche!
Now I've got a big 'ol plain wall in the dining room I need to think about. Right now I'm not planning on leaving the skirted sideboard here. I'm toying around with a large DIY art project in my head.
Instead of the new table finishing the room off, it tossed everything up in the air. I think it's a good thing though. Even if it is more work.
Has that happened to you guys before? You bring in one new item and suddenly everything is getting moved and switched up!
