I need some help friends! The time has come for us to get a dining room table.
(You're probably thinking: those people are heathens! What do they eat dinner on? They've been married three years and don't have a dining room table!)
We are not heathens. We have a table to eat dinner on, but it was a temporary solution. And actually, we've had two dining room tables, but for reasons I won't get into, they both had to stay at our previous residences.
When we moved in, I immediately went to town on shopping for a table. I dragged Mr. B all over looking for the perfect table and made him stare at endless webpages searching for the one. I imagined this beautiful, huge, grand table where little kids would do their homework and we would host many a dinner parties and holidays. Heck, I even bought the chairs at the auction! How could you forget my Crate & Barrel steal of the century!
But I put the brakes on when I realized it didn't make any sense to buy a table BEFORE the renovation work. It would just get in the way, plus, I didn't want to risk it possibly getting scratched, painted, ruined, etc. So I held off. And now that the kitchen is done, it's time to find the table!
I've had my eye on this gorgeous piece from Ballard Designs:
I'm especially digging the pedestal look on a rectangular table and it's safe to say that after a year of contemplating, I'm pretty much sold on this "look". But I was hoping to maybe find a cheaper version elsewhere? You know, something similar but say, half the price?! (Wishful thinking?)
Here's where you come in:
1. Have you seen a similar table elsewhere for cheaper? Tell me where. I'll drive to the ends of the earth to get it.
2. Do you have any promo/discount codes for Ballard you'd be willing to share? Even a hundred or two off would make a difference.
Thanks in advance for your help for letting me know what you think. I need your help!
