Table and Chairs....Happily Ever After

The Nester http://www.thenester.com/ is having a table party....This chick has STYLE and on a shoe string budget and the best part - she's NOT afraid to proclaim her thrifty style! To anyone and everyone! Her mantra is "It doesn't have to be perfect to be beautiful" isn't that CLEVER?!?!
SO, I recently moved and knew I had to downsize and as luck would have it I was able to sell my kitchen table and chairs so it left me with this(until moving day which has already come and gone).....
My kids and I NEEDed a place to eat right?!? SO what's a girl who has (edited HAD) a TON of stuff and a lil creative flair to do? Pull pieces from other parts of the house of course!! The vintage sewing table was used as my island, the two slip covered chairs were in my dining room (after I pulled those chairs from the dining room I of course had replacements!! The replacements were a lil more formal which is why they went to the d.r. {wish I had pics of those in their space} and the bench was in the GARDEN).....
I LOVED the new lighter more french bistro-ish arrangement and the best part - it didn't cost me a DIME and I made money!! So it just goes to show you that it pays to shop your home (AND garden) prior to spending money un necessarily!

Impressive! Looks very French - a great place to enjoy a cafe latte and a croissant!
