new dining chairs.

Tuesday, December 20, 2016

Hey hey!  Remember a few weeks ago when I was searching for dining chairs?  Well, we finally pulled the trigger and ordered some!

I really had my heart and mind set on a bench, which narrowed down the options considerably.  I also really liked the idea of a natural woven look, and I thought the muted beige/gray tones of the Kubu Dining Chair from Pier1 (as seen in Option 5 in my chair-hunting post) would tie in the colors of the nearby sofa, flooring and table.  I liked the armchair version that I listed in the post but after measuring, realized that they would be too deep on either side of the table.  So, we ended up going with the armless version and the matching bench.

After having all 5 items in my online shopping cart for weeks, they finally went on sale (the chairs down to $99 and the bench down to $153), plus an extra 15% off and free ship-to-store.  I ordered them last Monday and they arrived at the store on Thursday!  I was so impressed with how quickly they came in.  Oh, and everything fit in the back of my Mom Van, so bonus points there, ha!

I love the colors and think they go really well with everything, but I've already noticed that they're a little delicate.  We have to train S2 not to get up in them with her knees and to sit on her bottom when she's in them.  Kind of a bummer, but she doesn't really sit here much anyway, so I don't think it's that big of a deal.

I think having the bench on one side is going to be so great!  I love it.

Oh and a close up of the material - this is pretty true to color.

If I don't pop in here again before Christmas, I wish you all the very happiest of holidays.  We have a jam-packed few days (really, you should see my spreadsheet), but by Monday we should have a little time to relax before heading back to work on Tuesday.  S2 is going to be so thrilled with what Santa brought her (an American Girl Bitty Baby... shhh... don't spill the beans ;)) and I can't wait to see her reaction.

Oh, I also wanted to mention to go follow me on Instagram @jenna_lovelakeliving and on my NEW graphic design account @typographicallyjp for all my holiday updates. :)

Merry Christmas y'all!
