I Love Lamp. I Love Lamp.

I also LOVE our new table! I went to celebrate Turkey Day with the fam and scored some free furniture...life is good. Here is a before pic of our sad little depressed dining room.

And this is after! With a pretty new table donated to the "Decorate the Joseph's House Fund" by Jenny and Abe. Thanks guys! You can't see it in the pic, but the table was left out in the barn and has some warping and finish issues. However, I really like the look of that. Gives it some character and will save any grief when Jack (or Loran) puts the first big ding in it. One end has already been polished with bananas courtesy of Jack.

I am still on the fence about the chairs...they have black leather seats on them. Hmmm looking for some inspiration on that one.

Isn't this the coolest pendant lamp?!? I got it on sale at Pottery Barn for $49! Ok...I didn't find this great deal...Anne over at The City Sage spotted them. I bought three and am thinking that two would look good over the table. I would love to fit three in but there might be some overhang...any thoughts?

PS- No one say anything about our pretty indoor/outdoor calico carpet. It is a very, very, very sensitive subject.

LOVE LOVE LOVE! It's exactly what you've had in mind! SOOOOO perfect.

Those chairs would look awesome reupholstered. Apparently it's really easy to recover those types of seats (though don't hold me to that as I've not actually tried).

I could see a really lovely solid colored linen, or something very chic and mod.

AWESOME steal!
