Ever have one of those days where you start browsing for a specific item and go off down the rabbit hole?
Well this was one of those mornings))) I was browsing Wayfair for a specific type of lantern a customer had requested and ran across an ad for my farmhouse style dining table….on sale now of course!
Isn’t that always the case! You find your perfect table…..break down and buy it……next time you see it….it’s on sale…go figure
Here’s my farmhouse table from a year ago. I still have it and use it every day. Now there isn’t six people around it everyday, but it will seat up to eight okay.
Here’s a pic I just took. Guess I could have moved the chairs so you could see it better….
It’s had all kinds of things on top of it. You know how it is. The dining table can be the catch all for when you walk in the door.
I make an effort to keep my table clean and free of clutter….but it”s not easy!

Mine came from Wayfair and I have to say, we were very pleased with their service.
When the table arrived, it had a small chip (about an inch) where the table goes together. My table has the leaf in it and we leave it that way all time. It has a distressed look so had we been buying it in a store we probably would have bought it anyway. I was tempted not to even mention it to Wayfair….but it was BRAND new.
The damage didn’t occur in shipping, it was very, very well packed. It had to have been a flaw in manufacturing and we really were hesitant to even mention it.
Figured we would just reach out to them and maybe they would just refund a small amount to compensate which we would have been happy with.
They wanted to replace the table. My first thought was great! Then I remembered my husband had to put the table together, and it wasn’t hard, but putting another table together would cut into his golf game)))
So I told them, just let it go. The table is very heavy and getting rid of the damaged table would be too much of a hardship for us. Us being seniors and all….you know how that is. So I was willing to just keep it.
They said no, they wanted to replace and they would pick up the damaged table. So, they shipped me another table and took the damaged one out. All we had to do was put the legs on the new table and put the leaf in.
Anyway, I just thought since I was going down that rabbit hole I’d take you with me! Now, it’s back to work for me….there’s a video waiting to be edited)))
