Leanbean in Germany

Military wife trying to figure out this military life

Dining Room June 18, 2009

After the red chair fiasco, there was another piece of furniture that didn’t quite work – the dining room table.  The Bradshaw table from Room and Board is modeled after Carrie’s coffee table from Sex and the City.  I had seen it in the store and loved it, so when I saw it at the Outlet, I immediately snatched it up despite the light colored wood.  I prefer walnut and dark woods but I love the table so much that I didn’t care.  The table has a 45 inch diameter and comfortably seats 4 maybe 5 people.  Our dining room could comfortably fit a 20 person table.  Again, whoops!  The table is not nearly the right scale for the room.

Due to a little interesting quirk of German housing (no closets!), we will not be replacing my beloved Bradshaw.  I figure, if I love something but it doesn’t work, who cares?  I’m the one living with it.
