Hello sweet friends!
Last Tuesday Mr. Living went shopping and bought a beautiful round dining table for our breakfast area.
The friends that follow me know that I had a gorgeous, 'alabaster table top' on my previous breakfast table, but now our daughter Alexandra has such a table. Hold on! I'll tell you the story behind the new table, lol!
You see, our pug Ben that died four years ago chewed on the 'simple legs' of our round 22 yr. old breakfast table when he was a puppy and he died at almost 13 years of age, so you can imagine for how long I had it like this, lol!
Alejandro kept on telling me that I should look around for an antique round table with gorgeous legs, to fit the alabaster on top of the new table. Being that I am such an 'obedient wife,' I've been looking around for the last two years, to no avail.
I always found them not to be Alejandro's taste, or the foyer kind, or too big to fit the alabaster top, etc. I didn't care because on my subconscious it reminded me of Ben, our sweet pug.
One good day, last Tuesday, the sales lady from the European Antique shop called me and informed me she had two gorgeous arrivals, of antique French tables.
I called Mr. Living and told him to go and see them himself and he bought it to my surprise!
He had loved it immediately, but it turned out to be two inches larger than the old one, so that's how he had the idea to give Alexandra the alabaster table and 'both parties' are so happy now; our DD and us ...and since I'm one of those people that likes change most of the time, even if it was 'forced upon me' heheheee... I loved the idea!
Hope you like it too.
|Here she is, the 'antique French' solid oak, round table with hand carved accents Alejandro purchased it himself and she was also pretty good priced for what it is!|
Look how grate the vintage Dutch chairs look next to the elegant table...I love it!
|I love the wavy edges on the table and of course, the beautiful hand carved bottom that caught Alejandro's eye and made him decide on buying it, even if it was 2 inches larger than the previous, therefore, the alabaster top was too small for it now.|
|We are also very happy that the vintage Dutch chairs, which have lovely legs now look perfect next to the French table.|
We loved the finish on the 'oak table top' too and it's in perfect state. Not as gorgeous as an 'alabaster top'...but we're so happy that our sweet daughter Alex owns it now after we have enjoyed it for 22 years.
Thank you so much for your sweet and kind comments, you always make my day!
Thanks to the lovely hostesses for having me at their great parties.
