In other news, we need a new table. Two actually, but we'll take it one at a time, try not to be greedy you know. We have a farmhouse style table currently, that's for the dining room, but we're using in the kitchen so we have a place to eat. It's not the table that came with our dining chairs, we love the chairs, especially after their makeover, and we strongly dislike the table. So naturally, the table is what we need to replace. This is pretty much what it looks like (because I forgot to take a picture)
We like the look of this one from West Elm. The slim lines of the metal legs, the rustic look of the top and it's large, seats 8. While I like the look of it, I'm not really certain it would look right in the dining room with the direction we're going with it.
A great midcentury option
another midcentury option
my favourite option
I like the last one the best, and it would probably be the easiest to DIY, if we could find an old base from a round table and slap on a top, and then we could definitely make sure it's the right size for us. I've been looking on kijiji and thrift stores for a while, as well as scouting out more conventional stores, since that midcentury-modern looks seems to be in right now. All we know is we'd really like a new dining room table to put in the room when we finish it, although we're not in a hurry, because we want to make sure we're able to get the right one.
