I Was Wrong

I thought I was being so creative and smart when we bought the coffee table to go in the kitchen nook. I thought, "Why would we need another place to eat when we have the bar right there, and the formal dining table one room over?" It made a lot of sense in theory. Little did I know just how much we'd end up eating around that little coffee table with our plates on our laps. I found out that I just don't care for eating with my plate on my lap.

So my poor, understanding husband agreed to let me get a real kitchen table to put in that space, and we moved the round coffee table into the office.

I really really love it. We found it at World Market, and just picked it up today!

I love your house! You have to be my interior designer when I finally move into my own place! =)

Heather C said...

Beautiful! Love the table, and the plaque on the wall too. :)

Katie said...

I love the picture on the wall!! The question is.. is it a picture or is it a framed piece of chalkboard. Cause that would be an awesome idea... *tries to decide where she could put one in her house*

Tracey said...

Um, do you clean you house before you take a picture for the blog, or is your house really that spotless? Like there's not even a paper pile on the counter, or a kid toy in sight? What am I doing wrong????

Love the table, and the mismatched chairs are great. And of course, the token booster seat!

stace said...

Nice mismatched chairs. :)

Stacie@HobbitDoor said...

Katie: The "picture" is just a framed piece of particle board that I had cut to fit, and then spray painted with chalkboard paint.

Tracey: I definitely DO try to clean before I take blog photos. You wouldn't feel so badly if you could see the parts of the rooms that aren't in the photos :). There was one sippy cup that snuck in there.

Aren't you glad you were wrong? Now you have that adorable table, it looks so nice!

I really like your decorating style, your home is so very pretty!

What happened to the house? what did you do? Have you no scrumptules?

the tile is a broken tail bone waiting to happen if it gets wet AT ALL. Keeping that floor dry is more important then keeping Magai's dry.

Pelly said...

Fun J.J.! I don't like eating with plates in our laps either!

Wanted to share a video I made to one of your songs: http://therockwire.blogspot.com/2010/10/baby.html

I actually really love the white table you ended up with. And the missmatched chairs are quite cute, too! You've done a really good job putting everything together...I remember what it looked like when you first moved in and you've come a long way! Very homey (:

Craig said...

I really like the Life is thirst Love is water - is that a picture or a chalk board sign? Either way it rocks!

~CountItAllJoy~ said...

SO great! I'm just discovering your blog today and I am totally following!
So, I have a question... The mirror and the chalkboard, which I found that you spray painted, are gorgeous! Can furniture be spray painted in the same way and look as nice?? There are a couple of cool finds that I would love to paint, but, have NO experience, and so I've been shying away...
