Sweet Little Table and Chairs

About two years ago we met and fell in love with Molly.  

Molly Girl

At the time she was being fostered by a sweet family we knew who fostered dogs through the Humane Society.

Can you believe someone would give this precious face away?

The problem with falling in love is, that once you’ve fallen, you don’t want to walk away.  You can’t imagine anyone loving or caring for that thing as much as you would.

That was the case with Molly.  We couldn’t walk away.

So we didn’t.  

We adopted her.  

Then we decided to foster dogs through the Humane Society as well.

But, again, when you fall in love, you end up with…

Gidget Girl

… a Gidget.

Yep, fostering dogs proved to be difficult for us.  We fell in love with several dogs, but in the end, we adopted out four and kept one.

My point in this is, I have the same problem with furniture.  

I LOVE furniture. 

I love how it can totally change a room.

I love how just changing the fabric of the chairs can alter an entire kitchen.

I love how one small piece of furniture makes me want to rearrange and clean my house.

Please say I’m not alone in this… anyone??


Well, it happened.


I bought this little table about two months ago.

The Rustic Pig: Table & Chairs

And then I found these four chairs a few weeks ago and knew they would be perfect for this table.

I loved the harp back design of the chairs, but the poor cushions had seen better days.

After a good cleaning, I painted the table and chairs in Annie Sloan’s Coco.  

The chairs went from this…

… to this…

See what a HUGE difference fabric makes!

Once the chairs were waxed, we put them back together.

Then the sweet little table and chairs were complete.

And it started all over again…

..I was in love…

…and I wanted to keep it.

I don’t need another table and chairs.  In fact, I have another table set in my garage waiting to be painted.  And an additional 4 chairs that need a table.


…since my kitchen is decorated in reds, golds and browns and I’m not quite ready to do an overhaul on the kitchen.

It’s for sale.

Whoever buys it better love it as much as I do.  They better take care of it like I would.

Or else…

  13. How frequently do you want to be freer? Residing in America, we’re afforded more independence than in any other part of the globe. We can go anywhere we want without asking permission of our Government. We can hold any job we want for anybody who will employ us, as long as it’s authorized of course. We can marry or cohabitate with anyone we want – gender irrespective. We can begin and operate companies. Our freedom is 1 of the most coveted rights we have as Americans. Yet we tie ourselves to offices and desks and towns and colleges and so on. Why? Why not enjoy much more freedom? Why be tied to all of those issues if you don’t have to be? Why wish; why not do?

    This new technologies not only saves you fifty to sixty percent on your month-to-month phone invoice. It also offers a host of services the telephone company cannot. 1 of these – a “get virtual sms number” — can get rid of lengthy distance costs to friends and family who want to call you. Here’s how it functions.

    My preferred way to talk to individuals is over Skype(tm). With the right established up, you can have very distinct and simple to comprehend discussions with out yelling at each other and you can include video if you like. My neice likes to “call” from my brothers laptop computer then operate about displaying me issues with the digital camera. It really is fairly cool occasionally. The laptop computer works good for resort rooms and any where on the street. You can use a headset if you want a semi-personal conversation. You can do a lot much better for your house or office.

    Talk about life-lengthy deal with, telephone service for much less than $ 15 a month! This services comes with a fully prepared strategy, limitless inbound and outbound calls all through the U.S. and Canada. The service is excellent and when you get your free trial edition and you want to see for your self.

    This has a great deal of advantages that you might not understand at first. Even if the other person is utilizing a normal fax machine, the service converts the fax that they deliver into a format that can be seen on a computer. This provides you with an automatic digital backup duplicate of every fax that you receive. You never have to lose a fax again, simply because you can arrange them and back them up digitally. You can put them into folders in your e-mail account or in the fax service account you get from the service supplier. You can obtain your information and burn them to disc.

    Hence, conversation technologies is needed to our company facilities these days. Every time it updates, our company needs to grab it because it gives much earnings and less expense to small and large businesses. This new era company phone system or Cloud PBX will give continuous communication with every faithful clients and customers.
