OMG!!!! My dining set.... - Random babblings of a fiber-obsessed nutcase

About OMG!!!! My dining set....

Previous Entry OMG!!!! My dining set.... May. 1st, 2008 @ 06:59 pm Next Entry
is GORGEOUS!!! But don't take *my* word for it - here, have some pictures:

Here's the table, with both leaves in. With the leaves, it's 48" x 72"....a very nice size for our family:



Without the leaves, it's only 48" x 48" - perfect for everyday use:



Here's a closeup of the leg detail - I really like how they look:



And, here's the funky corners - I like them, but still haven't figured out how to do a tablecloth for it:



And, the chair - I have 4 matched ones:



These lovely items were made by an Amish craftsman. I ordered them thru the Amish Outlet Store online, and couldn't be happier. Beautiful work, gorgeous, gorgeous wood....it's...words fail me. The pieces are very solid, and look and feel like they'll last forever. I am very impressed!

I had to share the joy - I am beyond pleased with them. I highly recommend them if you're in the market for wooden, handcrafted furniture.

Don't do a table cloth. Do placemats and a matching runner for the centre of the table.

It's lovely.

See - THIS is why I post stuff - to get ideas that I just can't see because I'm stuck in a preconceived notion! :grin:

I was so focused on "tablecloth" that I didn't even consider showing off the wood.......THANK YOU!

I need to get looking at drafts again....a nice teal-y green would go good with the house.....:grin:

The nice thing about placemats is, if you weave your own you can make a couple of spares so that when one inevitably gets stained, you can replace it. Helps if you wash the spares when you wash the ones in use -- that way any laundry fading happens across the whole set.
