Dining Room Table

In our new house we have a dining room, we didn't in the farm house. So, of course we didn't have a dining room table. My mom gave me her old oak table that we've had for more than twenty plus years. She had gotten a new Amish style table that seats twelve and this one had been sitting on her porch for a while. It needed some help, so after a gallon of high gloss white paint it went from this......

to this.......

Now I just need to find some chairs to go with it and I'll be all set! (She wouldn't let me have her chairs)

I also found out that my husband really does love me! He really, really does! Cause if he didn't he wouldn't have climbed on a chair and risked getting shocked twice to take this light down

so that I could make it look like this

I did not like the gold light at all! But I'm really lovin my black one! It looks like the expensive wrought iron ones, at least I think so!

Then I painted my pretty little colorful chickens just plain old white! I'm liking the whole black and white color scheme, with a touch of red, of course!

I'll be back tomorrow for more updates and pictures of what we've been doing around the house this week.

I just noticed that I posted two of the same pictures of the table, and I can't figure out how to get one of them off. Ooops!

Thanks! Mom, I'm sorry, you know I don't have a truck and it just won't fit in the Jetta! So I guess it has to stay here! Besides Daddy said you didn't need anything else in that house!
