banquet seating

DH had the brilliant idea (or did I send him subliminal messages first and now he thinks its his idea?) to have some built in banquet seating built for our breakfast area...our plan is to have a little two part seat made for right under each window, open up the table with at least one of the extra leaves (is that the right word?) we have for the table, and viola seating for at least five.























The black rug will go (Holly is sure to be happy about this :) I'm making drapes with the hip chocolate floral fabric as we speak and these will hang over the two long windows flanking the french doors in the back SOOOOOO I'm planning to buy some matchstick blinds for these two windows and hang some pelmets I've already made (again with the hip floral). I'll probably use these old roman shades and turn them into couch pillows if I can.

In the meantime I've been trolling pinterest for ideas for the banquet...

finally!

Made my list and I'm checking it twice...checking it off that is. I feel like I'm finally finally getting things DONE around here and man it feels great. Here's the table that the boys have eaten at since the twins were 2...


















I still have to paint the chairs but at least we're on our way. My DH took the boys to the park one afternoon so that I could finish painting the chess board on top (still have detail work to do). They came home just as I was finishing and one of the twins (the one who is less apt to give compliments) said "Oh Mom, its the most beautiful thing ever! Thank you so much for doing this." Stuff like that makes my heart GROOOWWWW. Its the little things people. And yes they play chess. What can I say, they're nerds like their parents.
