We got our dream dining table this summer. We went back and forth about building a table, having a table built, or going with one that we loved from a store. In the end, we ended up spending a lot more than we wanted BUT we got the table that we always came back to in the decision process. We decided on the Pottery Barn Benchwright Dining table.

We LOVE this table! We love the natural wood color, the iron accents that give a rustic touch, and the size of it. It is massive! It has two leaves that make it easily sit 14 people. Thanksgiving at our house!
I didn't put it on the blog because I didn't have chairs. I had a really hard time committing to chairs because I wasn't sure what I was looking for and couldn't spend PB prices for chairs after I bought the table.
I ended up finding my chairs though...and just had to wait for a good sale and to have the money to spend.
Here is the end product!
I loved this "wine barrel chandelier" shape from Shades of Light but the $497 price tag didn't work. Restoration hardware has one also but that price tag DEFINITELY didn't work for us. I also worried about the wood tones not matching or being too much.
So we ended up going with this light from Home Depot. It was less than $150, had the same shape, and the iron work worked better with our table. I bought the burlap shades from Pottery Barn too.
Here is a close up of the chairs I decided on. All of the chairs came from World Market.
I got 6 of the X-back wooden chairs and 2 Anna Slipcover Chairs for the ends.
I love the feel of this room now. It almost completes our new sunroom/dining room. One more spot to fill.
I've added a few new signs to my etsy shop today too. Here is a sneak peek :)
Thank you to everyone that has contacted me about signs or shared the etsy shop on facebook.
We are BUSY and thankful! :)
Jimmy and I wanted an Advent Calendar to fill up with notes to the kids, fun activities, and candy. This is what I came up with and decided to make more to sell.
A very special song and verse for those with little ones :)
Thanks again! Feeling very THANKFUL for this little blog and friends I have made through it!
