I said I was not going to buy any furniture until after we moved in. That didn't happen. I held off until less than two weeks before settlement, so I don't think that's too bad. :)
Our plan is to use our small table and chairs in our dinette area for now and make the morning room into more of a sitting/relaxing area. I figure we don't need a big table in the morning room for just the two of us. I decided to buy patio furniture for the morning room, so that when we convert that room to a dining area in the future, we can move the furniture right on outside to our deck or patio.
Here's what we got:
It was on sale at Target for $449.50 (originally $899). This decision was made after looking at Macy's, Sears, Pier1 and a few other stores and finding nothing we liked for less than $1,000. It says we can return it within 90 days so if we hate it when we receive it, I will just send it right back!
Here an olioboard representation of my general plan for our kitchen/morning room (with my actual furniture set to the backdrop of my actual space... so cool!). I feel like the proportions are a little off because it's hard to portray depth in 2D, but you get the general idea.
|I'll have to take some better backdrop pictures once they clean the house!|
What do you think of the chrome bar stools for the island? I love the retro look (and I found a set of 2 on craigslist for $40!), but I'm not sure if they work in such a traditional kitchen.
