The Table Has Arrived!

Remember the dining room chairs?  Well, the dining room table has arrived!

The table ended up matching the chairs perfectly (they're all teak, after all).  There's a lot of wood going on in there!  I'm in the process of exploring ideas for wall decor, table runners and mats, et cetera to give the room a little more light and personality - there are some great craft projects in store!  I also need to rehabilitate the table itself.  This is the table I grew up with, so it's had plenty of water, hot, homemade food, and a couple of forks thrown at it over the years (little brothers will throw tantrums).  With a little steel wool and some teak oil I ought to be able to restore the table to something of its former glory.  This will also be the site of future crafting - I'm very excited!

Just to prove the table is already getting some use, here's a few pictures of our very first meal in the dining room, complete with, um, temporary place mats.

A big salad, some smoked salmon, and lots of warm, crusty bread - a great inaugural meal.
