My kitchen table found at auction!!!

Happy Monday friends!!!!.....
I wanted to share one of my favorite items in the beach kitchen table....after months of looking, I got just what I old chunky pedestal base with an equally old table top!!!....they were not found together, but by swapping the top for a larger one and using paint and stain to get just the look I was going turned out like this.....

I love round tables...they are great for games, conversation and you can fit so many people around them!!

Isn't this pedestal so chunky and fabulous???

I bought the 6 chairs from Ballard Designs....they actually were reasonably priced!!...sometimes you need to treat yourself....

I picked up that cute little crocheted table runner from a tag sale...been thinking that a burlap runner would be great on there instead....

OK, I paid $14 each for these fabulous counter stools that match the Ballard chairs at The Christmas Tree Shop...can you believe it???...I'm kicking myself for not getting a few they don't sell them....boohoo....

Love the distressed finish on the pedestal and apron...


Thanks so much for stopping by....

  4. I love your table, chairs, and bar stools. My favorite is the table! Love that big chunky pedestal, and love, love, love the distressing!

  5. Beautiful table & chairs! I guess good things come to those who wait. I do love a round table...wish I had room in my kitchen for one.

  6. I LOVE this!! All of the chairs, stools and table are soooo cute! I am visiting from Not JUST A Housewife and I am a new follower!! I hope you have a great week and that I see you around soon!

  7. Beautiful table! The chairs, the stools, and the table definitely belong together!

  8. I also had that table. I got it at GW for 40 bucks in good shape. Wanted to paint it too.

    Sadly I had to leave it behind when we moved!!!
    I will never forgive myself because it would be PERFECT in this house. :(

    I love what I see of you blog so far and will be back again and again.

    I have a new blog party and you are invited :)
