A New Kitchen Table, New Kubu Stools and Some Fresh Paint

Hello Loves, I totally forgot to show you guys some changes I made in our kitchen. 
We got a new kitchen nook table a while back, and a couple of new KUBU stools 
(details of new furniture at end of post). I also changed the walls from chocolate 
brown to GAUNTLET GRAY by Sherwin Williams. I love the new paint color 
and will show you more of that soon. 

The table is 72 inches long, which is almost 20 inches longer than our old one. 
Truly super awesome because we live on our kitchen table and it really never looks like this...lol.

Since the table is so much bigger than the old one and we only had 4 matching chairs, 
I decided to get stools for the ends for additional seating. I chose KUBU stools 
because I think Wicker warms the look. 

I am in luv with the Gauntlet Gray SW Paint.

Notice our tortoise Willie basking under the heat lamp? 

Ok, here is the scoop on the furry stool covers. I found some gray furry seat 
covers at Home Goods which I love, but since they are square,  I had to get 
creative to keep the cover from slipping off the stool. I ended up sewing 
string on each corner and tying the string through the cracks in the wicker.

Here is where I got the stools:

Here is where I got the table (please note that there is a little story 
about the table, when it arrived from Overstock the color did not look as pictured. 
It had a very heavy whitewash on it which did not go in our house. Since I loved 
everything else about the table, I simply sanded off most of the heavy white 
paint and put on a clear paint sealant. I actually took pictures of that process but 
can not find them now....DUHHHH

Ok sweets, that's what I got for you this week. 
I hope you like what I did so far. I will share 
more pics of the freshly painted kitchen soon!

  5. Hi, i like the wallcolor too and everything looks great!
    Nice ♥

  6. Christine, I love your new paint color and table! The stools are very unique. Would not have thought to use a stool at the end, but it's nice. I'm hoping to white wash the top of my table this weekend. Thanks for sharing with SYC.

  7. O.M.G... I am so in love with this whole space Christine! The wall color, the table, and those stools (drool)!


  8. I love your home. And Willie too.

  9. You know, I was seriously considering the same table for my dining room, only reason why I didn't get it was that it was going to be too small for my space! Love it dear, and the stools too!

  10. It looks so pretty! I love your new table. It's always nice to have extra room. Our table can seat up to 6 but absolutely no more than that. It looks like you can squeeze in more. I like your cute stools at each end too.

  11. Wspaniała aranżacja. Całość wygląda jak z bardzo dobrego katalogu z projektowaniem wnętrz. Stołki są rewelacyjne, miałaś doskonały pomysł. Bardzo mi się podoba świecznik nad stołem, prezentuje się świetnie. Podziwiam Twoją pomysłowość.
    Pozdrawiam, Ania :)

  12. It's looking good Christine! Love it! Thank you for hosting at Home Sweet Home!

  13. I love love love that table and all the rough marks on it contrasting with the curve of the legs. A your new wall color is fabulous. We did Repose Gray by Sherwin Williams through most of our house and I love it with my white trim. Thanks for linking up to Waste Not Wednesday Link Party!
