New Dining Room Set has arrived

and look it didnt take me long to stuff our crap inside the stools! This is going to be the best part about this set. Baldyman always tosses his hats, gloves, and junk on my table and it just irks me to no end. When I saw these stools had storage--I knew this was the one. AND its deep storage AND he has 2 stools to fill up. I did toss my ironing in there to but he wont figure that out!
See it all looks nice and neat--no one has any idea what pigs we are!
And this is the table and chairs. I wont get the other chair for a couple weeks and it does have a leaf so we can still seat 6-8 when all the ankle biters are over. For now, for just me and Baldyman its nice and small and compact. What else we liked about this set is that its counter sized so its higher. That will be nice for baking, or working on things. So there it is...nothing fancy...but we like it!

You will be amazed at Monday's post. I did take pictures of my bedroom, clean side, dirty side..and its pretty bad...and I hate to admit this is how it is EVERY day.

28 Thanks for your comments!:

I relly like it - love the colour and I love wood finishes. And the bar stools are amazing - love the storage space.

Diane said...

Love the bar stools! I've never seen anything like them - the storage is awesome! My hubby drops hats - many hats - all over the place & drives me crazy. What a great idea!

The table & chairs are beautiful. Love the table top. Are the legs straight or at an angle???

Now you create a tablescape on the new table for Thursday! ☺ Diane

I love the storage in those stools...very cool. I am always looking for storage because my house is so small. It looks lovely, Dawnie and I am waiting for Monday's post.

I'm the neatnik in our family but over the years, I've relaxed. It will be fun seeing the REAL you.

Enjoy the weekend!

Anyway I will be back on Monday for my daily dose of laughter. Have a blessed Saturday.

Hi Dawn:
Very nice!!! I like the idea of the storage in the bar stools too. My hubby does the same thing as yours, just throws his hats and gloves and whatever else he has in his hands down on the table or snack bar. Yuck. lol.

Judy said...

I really like it Dawn and those stools are awesome. Enjoy it!!
