Now I am starting a dining room table.
I have been in love with Tolix chairs forever. I know they are popular and I don't care (I tend to shy away from such popular trends). I know that they are something I will cherish and use always, so trend or not they are here to stay as far as I am concerned. The only trouble is I haven't a dining room table. Not to mention it is hard to part with so much money for chairs. I have seen a knock of version offered at Overstock.com. Sadly they are currently sold out. My goal is to outfit and (mostly) finish my dining room before Christmas dinner. Wish me luck.
DINING ROOM BEFORE
Dining room IN PROGRESS
Needless to say there is no shortage of inspiration to be found on the web.
These are my favorites:
I adore this room! It makes me HAPPY!
This is another room that makes me swoon!
I imagine the table I build to look something like this (one could only hope)!
Maybe, just maybe, I will make a bench to go with the table too!
I love, love, love this! ADOOOORABLE! Great job Creative Ambitions!

Or possibly something more simple like Ana White's Rustic Bench
Needless to say, I have my work cut out for me. Did I mention I want to paint my kitchen black....
I covet, covet, covet this kitchen. http://www.housebeautiful.com/kitchens/colorful-kitchens
Did I also mention that I am planning on building a version of this Ana White Kitchen Island?
Isn't this lovely?
I am planning on a kitchen island as a bar table. I actually have a really old harvest table that sat on a screen porch in Maine for the past 100 years. I tried to lengthen the legs by screwing in short legs as extensions to no avail. The poor table legs have wood that is so brittle it was impossible. I considered tearing it apart and replacing the legs only to build it up taller. Then I figured why not resell it, as a lovely junque antique & build my own. So, all of these projects have a 5 day deadline, starting NOW. (Including finishing the master bathroom cabinets) do you think I can make it?!
