We had cute cloth-covered dining chairs and a white extendable table from in our last house. By the time we moved out everything was covered in paint and food spills courtesy of our daughter’s toddler/preschool years. So when moving into our new home we wanted dining room furniture that would look fantastic for actually having people over at the house, but that could handle the messy lifestyle of the kids. I love the results and the woodland theme kind of reminds me of Snow White. Read more

A big change— the one that you know deep down is necessary to move forward— is equally exciting and frightening. This time of year three years ago? I made a leap.
