Thrift Store Score: Dining Set

Brace yourselves folks, there’s a lot of brown coming up in this post…

I have been looking for a dining table and chairs FOR-EV-VER (name that movie).

I’ve been searching online for months for a viable solution for a dining table and chairs, since my kitchen only has an eat-in dining area and is a bit of an awkward space, as it’s very long and narrow.

I really didn’t want to spend $200+ on an engineered wood table, so was holding out hope for something a bit older, made of real wood and unique.

And I think I’ve found it! I purchased the dining table (with a leaf!) and six chairs from a local used furniture store for $139! The chairs actually went with a different dining table, but after a bit of pleading negotiation, the nice gentlemen at the store let me trade tables to take the beaut home. (The other table was super heavy and clunky).

I have big plans for this dining set (you didn’t think I was keeping it all brown, did you?) which I will share soon. And don’t worry: it is Louie-approved and he has already claimed his favorite chair.

Thanks for reading!

XO. Chrissy
