More new furniture....and the last of it for awhile (until my credit card recovers)! :o) While the old living room furniture needed to be replaced because of the overall "tiredness" factor, there is a legitimate reason for replacing the dining room furniture.
Here's why.... When we first moved to the house from our old apartment, we had a border collie during the move. Well, she got REALLY bored one day, and decided her next meal should be a table leg and a chair leg. After this little episode, she went to live with hubby's grandparents....couldn't deal with stuff like this on a regular basis and still keep my sanity. Fortunately, it was a perfect fit for them.
Here's the damage the dog did.... (Oh, and please ignore my dirty floor here. It got a good sweep and mop after it was hauled away.)
Here's a pic of the complete old dining room set:
And now, a picture of the new set:
You can't see it from this angle, but on the other side of the table, there is a bench that can seat 2 people. That was probably the single best feature about this table since we often have people over for games and such, and we're always scrounging up 2 extra chairs to put around the table. :o) Oh, and it's just in time for Thanksgiving which will be at my house again this year (yay!!).
But before Thanksgiving....we've got some painting to do, as well as tile the kitchen floor. I purposefully did not include the spot of vinyl on the floor that the dog (same one responsible for the other damage) decided to chew up one day....new tile has been a long time coming.
