Fabulous Finds - Dining Room Table

This week I stumbled across an ad for a shabby chic dining room table and four matching chairs. Curious, I followed the link and found the piece that is now sitting in my dining room. Listed was a distressed, cream pedestal stable and four cream, harp-back chairs apholstered in a pretty two-toned striped cream fabric. I contacted the seller immediately, who to my surprise accepted my rather low (well, much lower than I was willing to pay) offer. I picked the table up two days ago and couldn't be more excited about it. I have a large vintage cream armoire in my dining area also that was an old carrier for bolts of fabric in the war. It's a beautiful piece that was my own armoire as a little girl. The back has never been painted so you can see all the old stamps and markings from the war-time. It's really quite neat. Anyway, back to the table. I decided to keep my own four chairs and will distress them myself to match. They're more comfortable for everyday wear and I can use the other chairs for additional seating and keep them in my basement. I might line them up on the one wall in a sort of make shift bench and put some lovely books and various things out on the seats. We'll have to see. But for now, I'm happy with the table. I've been looking all over for a pedestal table to distress and found one that was finished for me at a 1/4 of the price I would have paid for it to be finished that way. It was a good day, a good day indeed!


  1. Ohh nice table Maria! Do you have any pics of the armoire you were mentioning? That sounds so intriguing!

  2. Not at the moment but once everything is organized I'll post some of the whole room - including the cabinet!

  3. I can't wait to see what it looks like when it is distressed.


Thanks for leaving your comments! I always love reading them. - Maria
