Wooden Floors, Counter Tops and Carpet, OH MY!
What do you think? I'm torn between the green and the brown for the Sun Porch. The floor is Tigerwood - I just really love the color. Anything is better than the hot mess my kitchen is right now.
This is a table I found at Crate and Barrel - It seats up to eight. I'm trying to decide if I want benches for the long sides and chairs for the ends or all chairs (then it would only seat six). We have a more formal dining room (this is for the kitchen), so the benches would be okay, but I'm afraid DH may not like that idea....
The website actually shows this table with wicker chairs, but no way, no how are wicker chairs gonna survive in this house of dogs, boys and madness.
(Shhh - I'm getting new stainless appliances too since my oven has given up the ghost and the icemaker ceased working - woo hoo! Hello debt! Just kidding - property tax refund/rebate because of the property value hit we took for the water intrusion damage to our house.)
Knitting Progress - I am on the home stretch on my Snowdrop sock and turning the heel on my second Waterfall sock so I should have some FO's in the next day or two. Also, some of that pretty, pretty yarn I was talking about is coming up soon!
I'm still loving the video from yesterday. I did indeed wake up today thinking, I love tornadoes, I love arachnids.
Sorry, didn't mean to write a tome.
Love the countertop sample. Really like the green carpet, but brown is probably more practical.
Also, benches become uncomfortable for longer meals... I'd pick chairs, but that's just me.
I think I've decided that boys and dogs don't mix with any furniture. I'm ready to just have a bunch of pillows on the floor and that's it...
I'd say brown to hide the dirt, but then I'd say I don't want the dirt to hide, so I say green. Plus, green will brighten up a sunny warm room.
How are the pups?
How delightful it will be when finished. BTW, sorry you won't make to Shepherds Harvest this year. I'll spend a little in memory of you.
