Out with the old, in with the new

Yesterday morning.....Old table (bought for us by my parents in early 1999). Still in good condition, but quite small and with a chair injured and gone:
Empty Kitchen...it looks so big this way!:

Yesterday lunch: No table to sit at and LD freaked out since his high chair wasn't in the kitchen:

Yesterday Night: New table (bought by DH and I on Saturday after 9-10 months of looking). It is counter height and HUGE! It fills up all that space (but I love it!).

We also bought other furniture on Saturday (pictures of the other pieces to come), including this new kitchen island for moi! LOVE it! It felt like such a splurge since I am the only one that cooks, but it has a knife drawer, utensils drawer, silverware drawer, built in spice rack, trash bag holder, shelves. On top it has a granite cutting board and the table opens up to be bigger. As huge as my kitchen is, it doesn't have a ton of counter space and this helps a lot.

It is fun to have new furniture and we've already put it to good use. The pictures don't even do it justice, so everyone's welcome to come visit. The only problem is that this table is so big that we feel like we are living in the land of giants!

Love the table and island. If the table makes you feel like you are in the land of the giants then we would feel right at home.

She is right. Pictures don't do it justice. It is a grand table. Very impressive.
