For those of you wondering, yes, we are still here. We did take a bit of a break from the whole blogging thing after our kitchen remodel kicked our butts but forget excuses, let’s get back into the swing of things.
If you recall, we concluded our last blog post with the following:
I promise we’ll explain the whole “why are there no chairs at your table” thing soon but in the meantime, what do you think? Isn’t it nice with the added color in the kitchen? Are you a sew-master?
Depending on your definition of “soon” we may be a bit behind schedule on that one so without further adieu here’s the tale.
Before our kitchen remodel, this was what our dining situation looked like.
We’d hung onto the table and chairs from our apartment days and it worked fine at the time but once we rearranged things, widened the kitchen space, and knocked out that wall (epic pic below) the rectangular table just didn’t seem to make sense.
So we snagged this guy from Ikea which we wrote about here.
Well, we finally found them (almost a year later).
These suckers (the mudhut perdana dining chairs) were just listed on target’s site and have the perfect mix of rustic and modern. And to top it all off, they are incredibly sturdy.
