Table, Chairs, and a Giveaway

Saturday, November 23, 2013

So remember how I always used to complain about my dining-room table? Well, I bought a new one... back in May. Time flies!


I bought the table from James + James, a small business based in Arkansas. I love it! I love the metal legs and the deep wood top. It was pricey, but I loved that I was able to support a small business with my purchase. And the Jameses were very nice and easy to work with. :)

Oh, I bought chairs, too. After all of my indecisiveness, I finally found some on Craigslist for $30 each. A much better price point than other options I was considering! I repainted them (my first ever spray paint job!) and my wonderful MIL redid the seat cushions for me with some fun fabric I found. I wish I could find a before picture... let's just say they were green & the cushions had definitely seen better days. Here's an after shot:

I am happy with how they turned out. It's so nice to walk into your apartment and not hate the first thing you see!

And now, for a little fun, let's do a giveaway! Did you happen to notice the cards on the table in the first picture? They are my first bpaperie product! A dear friend asked me to make "thankful for you" notecards for her for Thanksgiving. These are the two of the designs I came up with. I think they're cute!

I'm giving away two sets of 10 cards -- your choice of design. Just comment and let me know something you're thankful for this season! I'll use random.org to chose two winners on Monday morning, and I'm happy to mail these to any of our 50 states.

Confession: I had to use google to confirm how many states we have in the USA. Just keeping it real....

HAH. I'm so happy you shared the 50 states thing. It made me remember the whole Alaska/Hawaii location thing. Which also made me laugh. With you, though, always laughing with you.

I'm thankful for Casey's new job! And that it means I get to be home with my littles while they're little.
