Today Gavin and I drove into Santa Rosa to run some errands, visit Trader Joe’s and return something at CompUSA. We also stopped by and picked up our new dining room table and remaining chair. The table slid nicely into the back of our Matrix and the chair was secured across the back as well.
After lunch we assembled our new table. For the first time we will have a complete matching set of dining room chairs, quite a change from our mix-match look in Boston where we had a Crate & Barrel chair with “a scratch” and a floor room sample from a Harvard-area furniture store, not to mention the lovely 1950s molded-fiberglass chairs in emergency cone orange (slip covered), and some directors chairs for the last resort.
While we originally had our hearts set on the Pivot Table from Crate and Barrel, we found this table at Scandinavian Designs for far less and the matching chairs were comfortable, and the table fit better in the space. The C&B gift cards will have to wait for another day.
