The Search for the Perfect Dining Room Table

We’ve lived in our house now for almost two years and our search for the ultimate dining room table is still as much a process as it was back when we first moved in. Only now, we’ve accepted our tablecloth covered bridge table in our dining room as if it was that perfect, somewhere out there table that I yearn for. 

I’m far from your traditional fancy shmancy dining room table kind of gal. I want something unique, I want something different … like me!

I want a farmhouse style table … but the problem is do they make other pieces to go with the look that I want? I want a server, and I want a china cabinet (for the china that’s still sitting in my mother-in-laws basement, that I still don't think I needed, but was told I would get lots of great use out of it!)

I have these beautiful chairs that a family friend gave me – so really if I could find the perfect table problem solved right?! Ha, I wish it was that easy, they apparently don’t make a table for me, or they do but it’s only something a millionaire could afford.

While I haven’t actually gone into stores to look, I have combed the Internet - Pottery Barn, Wayfair, Overstock, Crate & Barrel, of course I’ve pinned up a storm on Pinterest and designed my dream home (and dining room) on Houzz.

These are just some of my faves … but maybe one day my dreams will become a reality and I will actually transform my bridge table dining room into an elegant, rustic, adult space (china and all!)

Until I win the lottery or find somewhere that has what I truly want, we will have to continue fooling our guests with our bridge table. Shhhhhhhhhhh - but that's only between me and you!
