Pottery Barn Style

I had these matching chairs hanging around. The guy I buy my boxes for shipping gave me a drop leaf table that belonged to his dad. He had no use for it anymore so I happily took it off his hands :) I'm good like that. Little side note....tell everyone what you do. Ya never know what might freely fall in your lap.

Oh it's ugly in that garage!

Just goes to show ya, everything comes back in style. Notice the middle fabric...cheetah print.
                                                                                 
These wire cutters made yanking the staples out so much easier than my needle nose pliers. They have also come in handy cutting orthodontic wires while on vaca. Not really the same pair but I love this pic and wanted to share it with you.
Me, the concerned Mom, my special friend, aka Dr. Dave orthodontist extraordinaire, my paranoid daughter and my idiot brother laughing in the background! Orthodontics at the RENTAL beach house before cocktail hour! A classic photo.

Apparently I didn't take a before pic of the drop leaf table....oops!





Now I am off to Ireland! No kidding....going to visit my son who is doing his first semester there. So, yay me!! I can't wait to see him! Have a great week!

Linking up here...

Your table and chairs are sooo pretty and sophisticated! And that photo with the pliers is a hoot, although I bet your daughter would disagree. Have an amazing trip and safe travels!

Just too fabulous. I just did two Lyre back chairs and they would be so nice with a table like yours. Oh, and I just love the family pic.

I love that the lining inside the drawer matches the chair cushions! Beautiful job.
