It’s time for another episode in the real-life drama that has been unfolding in our dining room for the past few months! Several of you have been asking what’s the latest, and others of you (I’m sure) wishing I would stop talking about it! Well, now that the holidays have settled, we settled on a decision as well!  Here’s our old Craigslist table, still in the dining room.  

And here’s the new table we’ve ordered ….

Well, I started thinking dreaming as I was searching through so many dining room tables and I found a gorgeous round one that I feel like would bring this space to life…

Is this dreamy or what?? I am always gaga over gold and especially combined with marble.  But I’m also paranoid of elements like marble that require special care.  So when I spotted this table with a faux marble top at a fraction of the price of real marble, I fell in love for sure!  (You can find the source and details of this one via my affiliate link HERE.)  And with a more modern table, naturally I had to go with more modern chairs. (eek!) So I went to work again and found some I hope will be everything I’m envisioning!…

What do you think?? I know, I know– so modern!  And upholstered!  But I’m ready for something like this.  And these were a fabulous deal as well!  Find the details on these via my affiliate link HERE.  The reality is, I have been saving for awhile for some updates for the house and I was able to get both of these tables, plus the new chairs for a few dollars LESS than that one original table we had wanted for the dining room!  And if you’re wondering what we’ll do with the current tables, we’ve got two engaged couples needing furniture soon so it’s a win for all of them too!

I am making changes in this house at a crazy rate since the beginning of the new year, but it’s time! If you’re following me on Instagram, I’ve been sharing some big changes in the kitchen and I’ll bring it to the blog very soon! Stay tuned for the table story big finale. (I hope!)
