My Dining Room Table Finally came!

I am so excited and happy.  My new table and chairs were delivered bright and early this morning.  And it is gorgeous!

When my husband and I knew we were moving, we both decided we needed to change our dining set.  He loved it, but it was pub top and the chairs were just too high for me.  We gave it to our daughter and started looking.  We found this set, fell in love and put it in layaway.  We would put $30.00 on it here and there and figured in a year we would have it paid off!
In February our son wanted to take me to a VERY expensive restaurant.  I told him, I would love to go, but right now we need other things more.  He said well what?  I said well you can pay something on my dining room set.  He said ok and paid it off!  That is a nice present, isn't it... then we moved in, and hubby went to pick it up and the table top was damaged.  They said if we waited another 2 weeks they would deliver it free....and anyone who knows my husband...he said...Free is Good!!
Finally it is here!
I hope you all have a wonderful Memorial Day weekend.  When I come back next time I am going to have a decorating dilemma to share with you and get  some of your great ideas!!  Cuz me, I got nothin!

Your new table and chairs are lovely. And what a sweet memory you will have since your son helped purchase it for you. Our daughter works at Mattress Firm and purchased a Tempur-Pedic mattress for us and had it delivered. It was so special and I will never forget her thoughtfulness. Someone once told me that our children will treat us well when they grow up. I can't wait to see more of your new home CeeKay.

It is so pretty CK, it looks like it is pub height too. Gorgeous base on it, and all the ironwork fits in with your decor beautifully. You home is just turning out to be a doll house. Hugs, Marty

What a beautiful and thoughtful thing for your son to do.

My daddy told me when my son was born that a son will be around when all others have left. That made me cray then...and still does.
