dining table update

la la lovely dining area

as many of you know, i don’t have a dining room (it’s currently a playroom).  instead, we really make use of the dining area in our kitchen.  we spend a lot of time in our kitchen, and specifically at our table, as we are big on eating meals together.  and, thats just the eating part.  there is homework and crafts, cups of tea and conversations happening here all the time, too.  since a lot of life is lived at our table, i was pretty excited to update our dining table and chairs with hayneedle.

i love the modern look and clean lines of this particular table.  and, i cannot get over how much more the space has opened up and brightened up on a whole.

the nuevo max dining chairs work great because they are easy to wipe clean (major plus with 4 kids) and the nuevo beck dining table feels so much more intimate than our old one.  in fact, i love the little set up so much that i’ve been sneaking my computer over to the kitchen table to work (forgetting all about my little desk).

see what i mean about brighting up the room after the jump :

do you spend a lot of time at your kitchen or dining table?

p.s. the white stuff in the chandelier is fake snow.  our elves, freddy and teddy (yes we have 2!), decided to bring the snow inside and i just figured i’d let it stay for the holiday season.

p.p.s  you can see more of my house here.
