Stuff For the New House

I'm so excited - I just bought a dining room table for the new house.  It's saal wood, reclaimed from old Indian railroad tie, restored, and pieced together to create a unique mosaic top.  It's green (not in color, but in eco-friendly terms, hehe) and super modern, and will create a cool focal point for our dining room, which is really the center of our house.  I want to pair it with leather parsons chairs, tons of acrylic candlesticks (not glass since we have a curious kid), a unique rug with lots of colors, and the painting that I'm working on... I think it's going to turn out to be a really cool room.

Re the rug, Sheridan's brother is deployed right now in Afghanistan (keep him in your prayers, please) and is looking into having a custom rug weaved for us.  We haven't quite figured out the logistics of it, but if we can make it work, we're going to have a really cool, custom room.  We'll see how that turns out.

Whatcha think of the table?

Meanwhile, we also bought a refrigerator.  YAY!!  We bought the biggest, baddest fridge we could find - we figured it would be a great investment for the family.  If P keeps eating like he has been... we're gonna need all the cubic footage possible to store tons of food to keep him fed as a kid/teenager.  Whew.

Two major items down, about 100 to go!  :)

Love, Mer

Thanks, girls. Glad you like the table - I LOVE LOVE it! I found it at CB2, which is Crate and Barrel's super modern, more affordable line. I recommend looking at their stuff - it rocks. (And BTW, I decided to pair it with cream leather chairs instead of chocolate. I can't wait to see it all come together, too!)
