I had my eye on this for a long time dreaming of the day I'd have the space for something this big. Salvaged wood + legs from Ikea + some screws = genius! Ryan thought it was a great idea too...... for an outdoor table. I swear in the three weeks that we've lived together, he's been winning most of the design decisions!!!! Did NOT expect that AT ALL, but I'm not mad because it turns out he has a lot of awesome ideas; subdued and neutral, but combined with my ideas I can honestly say that we both can't wait to come home and just do stuff to the house.

After eating on the living room floor on a spread-out towel for three weeks (we fancy), we finally picked a dining set we both agreed on. It kind of came to us by accident while shopping online for an "armchair". The chairs in the online brochure had arms on it, go figure. The best part was that the price for the entire set was well below our budget. What
I we didn't realize was that it was an outdoor set. Womp womp. No wonder it was so cheap, but cha know what? We bought it anyway, and we LOVE it!
(Terrible pic from my phone) There's not much to see at the moment, but once we stain it it'll get all dressed up with place mats.. maybe a table runner.. some flowers. I'd say shabby chic, but that sounds too feminine lol. Must be Ryan-approved. I joked that I was subconsciously drawn to an outdoor table because of his comment about the first table, or perhaps because it looks like my blog background haha! We had our first meal on it tonight... McDonald's! We are so fancy, I can't take it.
Would love to read about your beautiful design mistakes!
