John's parent's were visiting yesterday and we had time to run out and do a little shopping. I wanted to find a mirror to put in John's bathroom and we looked at several places but they were all too expensive, not the right finish or too large. But we did score a new table and chairs from Garden Ridge:
I had seen this set before and liked it. It seemed sturdy, but I was a little concerned about the girls and a glass-topped table. I showed it to John and he liked it. Then we noticed it was only $99 for the whole set. Uh, yeah. We're getting it.
We didn't have space in John's car, but since they had about half a dozen, we figured we could come back later and pick it up. Which we did. And we got the next-to-the-last one. That seemed odd that they would sell so quickly, but then I saw their flyer and it was on sale for half price. No wonder.
While John made chili last night, I assembled the table. Then we both worked on the chairs and had our first meal with the set. The finish matches the lamp above it, and the round table fits the space better than the previous rectangular table. Another bonus is that both girls can always sit next to Mommy now. You would not believe the quantity of tears that have been shed over someone not being able to sit right next to Mommy because sitting across doesn't count!
I think it was a good choice.
Earlier, I found this container, which I knew I wanted to put in John's bathroom to hold his extra towels. Only $20 at TJ Maxx. Perfect.
It's also the color I want to paint the bathroom vanities. But first I want to make new door fronts for them. And that isn't going to happen this week. Because next on the list is taking down the other bathroom's wallpaper and painting the walls and ceiling ivory.
