Building a Place for Grace... and Steve too

The past couple weeks I have bought a lot of new home items. Including furniture and decor. First off I wanted to show a pic of the cool deer bust I got at Kohls!

We purchased a new dining room table and chairs over the weekend. It was a set we had been looking at for a month or so. I wasn't totally sold on the mission style of it. It really doesn't scream Gracie, but it had the great function and quality we were looking for. After spending weeks comparing other sets that came no where near the craftsmanship and comfort of this one we finally bought it.

 It is A America  and we got it from The Old Cannery in Puyallup. It has 2 self storing leaves and seats up to 8 comfortable, 10 if you must! All solid oak wood. Best of all it also has equalizing cable glides, so I can open and close it to add or remove leaves on my own. Most tables take 2 people or a lot of work to pull apart and this one glides like...a glove... or something..

Here is the stock photo of the set. Personally I like it a lot better in person. Its more of a cherry color

We had some friends come over to help unload everything, it weighed a ton

Now onto putting together the chairs

The old table and chairs.

We also went to Fright Night at Enchanted Village this weekend. It was not scary at all, and it was raining... but had a great time anyway. We met up with some friends and went to dinner then the theme park. It was Steve's first Haunted house!!!

It looks like this is as Halloweeny as we are going to get this year. Steve's dad needs him down at the house they are building this weekend to help out. So we have cancelled our plans to go out. I'm not a big partier, so normally this change of plans wouldn't bother me much...except for I was really looking forward to being Snooki this year and I already have most of my costume.

Maybe I can figure out some other place to wear it....
work...the shopping...SANTA PHOTOS!


I also picked up the bed side tables from Pier One last night. Since I am not putting together our new room until we move, I would have liked to have left them in their boxes. Unfortunately when the clerk was carting them out to my car though, she dumped them onto the cement in the parking lot! Since they are made of mirrors, I thought it would be in my best interest to unpack and assemble them just in case something was damaged.
 They look great! I can't wait to use them!

Now we just need to find a new place to live!

Looks great! The equalizing cable thingys sound awesome. I'm always scared of smashing my fingers.

Also wishing I would have picked square cake stands instead of round. Oh well, you can never have too many!
