We've had our new farmhouse style dining table for a few months, but I am just getting around to taking a few photos of it. It is from Pottery Barn and we are very happy with it.
I went with the rustic pine wood stain.
Let me warn you, these are not great photos.
I was having the hardest time with the lighting and getting good shots of the room.
But, anyway... here it is! :)
I love the chunky legs.
And it comes with extension leafs for bigger gatherings. :)
But, for now we are keeping it at regular size for this family of four.
We also decided to go with the side table from the same design.
I don't have a big space, but it fits perfectly in front of the window.
And lots of storage space for table linens and school stuff - a nice convenience because we do school work at the dining table with the kids.
I think my farmhouse table would look great with a neutral runner; I've been looking around for one, but most of the ones I like are really out of our budget. Maybe something for Christmas?
So that is our new table.
Thank goodness for tax refund checks! :)
I also wanted to share a few pictures of my daughter, Olivia.
Olivia just started kindergarten yesterday.
I took these photos of her outside right before she started school.
She was born in November, so she didn't make the cut off last year.
I like that she will be one of the oldest in her class and also like that I got to spend a whole extra year home with her!
As you can see, she was very excited and had lots of energy to burn!
Once we got to the school, she did get sad and a little bit of tissues were needed, but she ended up warming up and having a lot of fun on her first day. She even woke up this morning and told me that she can't wait to go back to school.
That's my sweet, happy girl!
