I heart Pottery Barn

March 14, 2010

Yesterday while strolling through the Mall of Louisiana I happened upon Pottery Barn aka wish I could take the store home with me and saw this pretty little thing sitting in the doorway. That table is identical to mine, minus the fact we finished ours with a pecan top{like a traditional farmhouse table} and painted the bottom antique white{like that one}. I've looked up and down for a bench and chairs that I wanted and it took everything in me not to take off running with that bench out of the store.

The bench was $399, and I am not going to buy it {sad face}. I want to stick to my original plan and get solid wood pieces or antique/flea market pieces and finish them myself. So that has led me to venturing to the unfinished furniture store to hunt for a bench and a few ladder back chairs.

But again I am torn so give me your opinion. Do I want two benches and two really cool antique looking fabric chairs for the ends or should I stick to the one bench and a few ladder backs?

{hopefully this is what our table will look like when I am done}
